Samantha (above) is one of 40 visionary British female entrepreneurs receiving Government backing to drive forward their novel innovations and business ideas, as the UK builds back better from the COVID-19 pandemic and progresses its climate change ambitions.

Through the Innovate UK Women in Innovation award Samantha and her team are taking lightweighting technology and Cecence’s low energy rapid processing know-how a step further and developing next generation aerospace components using sustainable materials for the cabin of the future.
Samantha said “The award will support the delivery of ‘ecocence’ as an independent in-house sustainable brand for Cecence.  Innovate UK’s mentoring and outreach programme will provide opportunities to engage with a wide range of female innovators and provide a platform to promote an interdisciplinary STEAM approach to innovation and product development.

"I am hugely proud of the team at Cecence and what we have already achieved in this area, and excited to see how we can make further advances in lightweight sustainable materials and components for aerospace interiors.  Being selected as part of this cohort of extraordinary women is a huge honour and I am looking forward to connecting with and supporting one another on our independent and collective journeys over the course of this year.”
