CFMS Announces Ninth Annual Airbus DiPaRT 2018

Bristol, 10th September 2018 - The Centre for Modelling & Simulation (CFMS) will be hosting the ninth Airbus Flight Physics Distributed Research & Technology Partnership (DiPaRT) event at Bristol and Bath Science Park.
The Future By Airbus Smart Tech Zone 01Led by Airbus, and the UK Flight Physics community, this popular annual event will see in excess of 130 delegates gather together between 26th and 28th November 2018 to present on the theme ‘Shaping the Future of Flight’.

This years event highlights Airbus’ interest in learning about cross-sector innovation, where the Symposium is open to UK corporate, SME, academic and research organisations across aerospace, defence, automotive, energy and utilities. A mechanism for engaging and collaborating, the DiPaRT network of organisations and partners identify potential technologies and research aligned with Airbus R&T strategy.  Topics and themes for this year’s event have been announced, along with the Call for Presentations.

Victoria Cole, Head of Flight Physics Capability UK, and Lee-Ann Ramcherita, Flight Physics Innovation and Technology Watch Manager, leading the event, commented “DiPaRT provides the opportunity to engage directly with organisations focused on flight physics and advanced engineering, and to discuss research and technology advances that will shape the aircraft of the future”.

DiPaRT is an annual event that has been hosted by CFMS since 2013. Sam Paice, Chief Operating Officer, CFMS, “The everpresent digital-and-data-driven environment is increasing the value, visibility and benefits of collaboration, facilitating greater sharing of information between communities. We are delighted to host DiPaRT 2018, working with Airbus to manage and host the event.”

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.
