Nottingham University Opens Aerospace Technology Centre

November 12 2012

Nottingham University's new, 5 million pound Aerospace Technology Centre has been opened by John Rishton, chief executive of Rolls-Royce. The 20,000 sq. ft. centre on the University of Nottingham Innovation Park will eventually house more than 100 staff, including people seconded from industry. Researchers will develop new aerospace technology and ways to transfer that knowledge more effectively from academia to industry. High on the list is how to recycle composite materials such as those used in the latest passenger aircraft. The centre will be at the heart of the university's Institute for Aerospace Technology. The institute brings together a number of internationally leading research groups involved in work on aerospace materials. Many of the world's leading aerospace businesses work with the university. They include Rolls-Royce, GE, Airbus, Boeing, BAE Systems and GKN. The university is also working with many small to medium-sized businesses. The financial backing for the Aerospace Technology Centre building includes 3.1 million pound from the European Regional Development Fund and £2 million pound from the university.
