Aerospace Sector Deal

The Aerospace Sector Deal was launched in December 2018 by the Department of Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy. This deal was developed through a partnership between the AGP, UK Government and the UK Aerospace Industry, aimed at positioning the UK to take advantage of global technology trends.

The activities delivered through joint funding with industry will deliver on three Industrial Strategy Grand Challenges:

  1. The Future of Mobility
  2. The move to Clean Growth
  3. The transition to an economy supported by Artificial Intelligence and Data.

“This Sector Deal signals the government’s intention to position the UK at the forefront of valuable emerging markets.” The Aerospace Sector Deal
