On 15th July the Lightning Technology Research centre organised and hosted a workshop “Modern challenges for understanding and protecting against lightning phenomena”.

The workshop was attended by delegates from BAE Systems, Airbus, Bombardier, TT Electronics, University of Cardiff, University of Manchester, Horiba-Mira, Element Materials Technology, GKN Aerospace and Rolls-Royce.

The aim of the workshop is to create a high profile critical mass of researchers and technologists to promote and attract funding for all aspects of lightning technology.

The specific objectives of the workshop were:

  • To create a new multidisciplinary research community in lightning technology research, by developing interaction between the research community and appropriate science, technology and industrial groups;
  • To define immediate research challenges;
  • To shape future research directions in lightning protection for avionics, power generation and transportation industry, and
  • To initiate specific projects for which funding will be sought.
