The Future of Air Mobility Accelerator (FoAM) is a challenge-led, 6-month accelerator programme powered by Connected Places Catapult and in partnership with the Future Flight Challenge from UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), which is delivered by InnovateUK.
This application support webinar will cover the overall programme vision, the journey of the programme to date, the programme challenges and guidance on the application process.
The Catapult will select up to eight SMEs to join the programme where they will receive support from a consortium of industry, government, academic and regulatory partners on the trial and testing of disruptive innovations. Through a focus on new and emerging challenges within the aviation ecosystem, FoAM will work alongside a consortium of partners to ensure that the programme tackles significant sector challenges and de-risks innovation in the marketplace.
Alongside the trialling of their solutions, the SMEs will be guided through a bespoke programme tailored to their requirements, including investment readiness, technology and product development support, as well as introductions to aviation stakeholders and potential customers. These activities will be co-designed with the cohort of SMEs to support them in growing their businesses and adapting their propositions to the partners’ requirements.
Applications Close midnight 25 October 2023
