The Institution is co-hosting with the British Embassy in Berlin an event on 10 January 2019 to present a new paper which examines the impact of leaving the European Union on the UK’s aerospace industry.

Andy Storer, Chair of the Germany Group, is organising the event which is co-sponsored by Brigadier Rob Rider, Defence Attaché at the Embassy.

The aerospace sector is one of the most productive in the UK, supporting thousands of skilled engineering roles. Its success is highly dependent on participation in European and global supply chains, which enable it to concentrate on key specialisms, including wings, fuselage and engines.

Interim CEO Colin Brown will introduce the paper, “The Outlook for UK Aerospace – 2019 and Beyond” which will cover a range of issues including the impact of Brexit on the industry’s supply chain, investment in the UK and the potential movement of the sector’s highly skilled engineering workforce.

Following the presentation of the report, there will be a panel discussion moderated by Captain Andy Ewen CEng MIET, Naval Attaché to the British Embassy.

The panellists include Darren Ash, Director Commercial - Man&ES, NETMA (NATO Eurofighter 2000 and Tornado Management Agency), Alistair McIntosh who is Engineering Director, Rolls-Royce Deutschland and Dr Rachel King, Counsellor, EU & Economic, British Embassy.

Register to attend the event.
