2015 Symposium Program

We are excited to have Mr. James Free, Director of the NASA Glenn Research Center as our keynote speaker. The agenda will also feature aerospace speakers and panelists as well as a poster session highlighting research from this year's awardees.  If you have any questions regarding the Symposium or JCATI, please contact

JCATI is one of many programs included in the Washington State budget currently under discussion in Olympia. Until we know our next biennium funding level, JCATI cannot announce our 2015 grant recipients. We apologize for the impact this delay has on researchers and hope to notify all applicants of their status as soon as possible. 

The 2015-2016 JCATI Request for Proposals has been released. An online Letter of Support is due January 16, 2015 and is required in order to submit a full application. JCATI anticipates $1.2M of funding will be available for aerospace technology researchers and their industry partners. If you have any questions regarding the process or JCATI, please email

JCATI is collaborating with the U.K.'s National Aerospace Technology Exploitation Programme (NATEP), a £40M program focused on strengthening aerospace technology development and job creation. Washington Governor Jay Inslee and U.K. Secretary of State Michael Fallon signed a pact between the two groups at the 2014 Farnborough Air Show.

Both JCATI and NATEP are identifying emerging technologies and accelerating their development through funding and in-kind industry support. The next step is to identify a cooperative project between JCATI and NATEP to help open new markets for aerospace companies. For more information, visit NATEP's web page.
