Seventh annual Airbus DiPaRT 2016 event dates announced

Seventh annual Airbus DiPaRT 2016 event dates announced

The Centre for Modelling and Simulation (CFMS) will be hosting the seventh annual Airbus Flight Physics Distributed Research & Technology Partnership (DiPaRT) event at Bristol and Bath Science Park. 

With the symposium call for presentations shortly to be announced, the event will take place between 21st and 23rd November 2016. This popular event sees in excess of 100 delegates from Airbus and the UK Flight Physics R&T community take part in this annual three day programme.

DiPaRT was created in 2010 by Airbus UK as a mechanism for engaging and collaborating with the UK Flight Physics R&T community. Supporting the UK centred capability in design and integration of wings, landing gear and associated systems, the DiPaRT network of organisations and partners identify potential technologies and research aligned with Airbus R&T strategy.

Providing the opportunity to shape and influence pathways, DiPaRT provides transparency of Airbus’s strategic aspirations to shape and influence pathways in Flight Physics R&T.

Leading the event, Philippe Garang, Local Domain Co-ordinator - Flight Physics Capability, Airbus, commented, “DiPaRT is a great opportunity to bring together all the key players of the Flight Physics UK research community. Over the past five years the event has gathered significant momentum and has now become a major annual event. The aim is to foster collaborations and sharing of ideas and to encourage the development of technologies that will contribute to the Airbus' R&T Strategy.”

Sam Paice, Chief Operating Officer, CFMS, “The Airbus DiPaRT event is renowned throughout the aerospace sector, and we are delighted to host the event.”

DiPaRT commences on 21st November at with a series of keynote talks, followed by the Flight Physics Symposium where delegates are split into streams. Registrations for the DiPaRT event will commence end of October 2016 through the CFMS website.

About DiPaRT

DiPaRT has been created by Airbus as a mechanism for communicating with, engaging and orchestrating the UK Flight Physics R&T community. The aim is to foster a coherent, well informed and motivated partnership that can help Airbus effectively deliver its strategic vision for a UK capability, supporting design and integration of wings, landing gear and associated systems. Following the establishment of the UK Aerospace Technology Institute (ATI) this remit acquires a special significance.
