This forward strategy paper provides an initial assessment of the research landscape to identify five broad and interconnected research themes that the future flight challenges believes are priorities for social and economic research attention.

These themes need to be explored for engagement between those working in industry and science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM) fields and social and economic researchers.

Also along with those working in relevant fields in the humanities and arts.

The paper outlines the starting point for wider engagement across academia, industry, and the public sector.
