Flagship projects form the core of the technical programme; each addressing a major challenge in LAE manufacturing. The projects typically involve 1 or 2 postdoctoral researchers working for 2 years. There were 6 flagship projects in the initial tranche of projects which have now been completed. For the second half of the Centre programme, the Flagship portfolio was renewed following the Technical Strategy Refresh in November 2016 resulting in four Flagship projects, three of which followed-on from previous Flagship projects and one from a successful Pathfinder feasibility project.
