The Aerospace Technology Institute is a collaboration between the UK Government and the private sector to create a strategic framework and investment for the country’s aerospace industry. The organisation is naturally of great interest to any aerospace businesses or project teams looking for financial backing.

We were delighted to secure an interview with the ATI’s founding chairman Stephen Henwood, now a board director of 8020 client Aerogility, to learn about the Institute and what it looks for when considering funding applications.

Stephen spoke with 8020’s Marc Cornelius about the background and purpose of the ATI, the key qualities required for its backing, the role of good communication and how businesses can start engaging with the Institute.
