ISCF Future Flight Networking Event - Infrastructure

Event details
Thursday, 16 April 2020
9:30 am – 16:30 pm
This event will be live streamed via webcast
KTN is hosting three themed networking events.

***You, like us, will be only too aware of the fast-developing situation with regards to the COVID-19 pandemic. The safety and wellbeing of our attendees and staff is our priority and, with this in mind, we have decided to move the three ISCF Future Flight Networking Events from physical events to 3 online webinars:

– Infrastructure – 16th April

Use cases – 23rd April

Regulation – 30th April

We will work with you and all of our attendees and speakers to ensure that, despite not being face-to-face, we still give you as much opportunity to network and connect as possible.

Online Networking Platform: If you have opted in for access, this will be made available the week before the online event. You will be able to search the other participants and request 1:1 meetings with them which will be scheduled in the afternoon of the event via video chat embedded within our platform.

We welcome your feedback as to how the events are working online and how we can improve or increase their reach in these ever-changing circumstances.

Connecting people to collaborate and drive change through innovation has never been more important. Thank you for continuing to engage and we look forward to meeting you ‘online’ at this event.***


Phase II of UKRI‘s ISCF Future Flight Challenge will open on 6th April and to support the creation of consortia, KTN is hosting three themed networking events. The events are open to anyone interested in forming or joining a consortium.


The aim of the three events is to:

  • Convene interested parties to enable new collaborations to form
  • Raise awareness of the successful applicants from Phase I (as they will lead the consortia for Phase II)

  • Inform on the capabilities and expertise on offer to support your Future Flight project
