NATEP is an Aerospace Growth Partnership initiative led by ADS, the Premier Trade Organisation for companies in the UK Aerospace, Defence, Security and Space Sectors. It is a UK-wide programme delivered with the support of Regional Aerospace Alliance (RAA) organisations in England (Farnborough Aerospace Consortium, Midlands Aerospace Alliance, North West Aerospace Alliance and West of England Aerospace Forum) and in the devolved regions by Invest Northern Ireland, Scottish Enterprise and the Welsh Government.

The programme supports companies in the aerospace supply chain to develop innovative technologies, working in collaboration with others and supported by higher tier companies. It will equip them to win new business with existing customers and to diversify their customer base. It is based on a proven model delivered by the partner organisations from 2013-17. As well as grant funding, the programme provides high calibre technical and management resource to help those companies accelerate the technology development towards market readiness.

It is an industry-led programme. Panels of aerospace industry professionals and technology advisers throughout the English regions, Northern Ireland and Scotland are contributing their time for free to support the projects.

A new £8m injection of funding from the Aerospace Technology Institute (www.ati.org.uk) allows the NATEP programme to support 40 more collaborative technology projects involving up to 100 companies, Universities and Research & Technology Organisations. It will sustain or create 500 high value jobs. It will allow a further three six-monthly Calls for project proposals and support projects until 2020.
