I am writing to invite you to take part in research about the response of the aerospace industry to the Covid-19 pandemic and the potential impact of increased collaboration for your business.
This research is being funded by Collins Aerospace, a Raytheon Technologies company. It is being organised by Aston University as the data controller.
** Survey to be completed by 1st February, 2021**
Collins Aerospace have also tried to answer some questions (below) that you may have in advance:
What is the purpose of the study?
This study aims to evaluate the potential impact of increased collaboration and strategic alliance within the aerospace industry, considering the background of economic downturn caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. The survey will assess opinion on the effectiveness of the industry response to date and identify barriers or opportunities to collaborate in the current circumstances. The results will also be used to inform and support proposals to foster supply chain collaboration, aimed at improving long-term sustainability in the future. Over 500 participants will be asked to complete the survey.
Why have I been chosen?
You are being invited to take part in this study because your organisation is a member of one of the UK’s regional aerospace clusters. The survey aims to gather responses from a wide range of companies within the supply chain, both SME and MNC, and the UK’s successful aerospace clusters have an appropriately large and diverse membership.
What are the possible benefits of taking part?
As well as giving you the chance to share your own opinion of the effectiveness of the industry response to the pandemic, the survey will give you the opportunity to reflect on your own firm’s current relationship and collaboration with other stakeholders in the aerospace industry. The results will provide ideas for collaboration opportunities and offer valuable insight into the thoughts of colleagues, competitors, customers and suppliers.
The following link will take you through to the 10-15 minute survey.
Many thanks in advance for taking the time to share your insight.
Please forward this email to other appropriate respondents/departments within your organisation who would benefit from the results of this research.
