"In this context, the Aeronautics conference provides a catalyst for collective action across the sector on a broad variety of issues. This year's conference discussed some vital areas of reflections on issues at stake for the EU Aeronautical Industry in the global civil aviation market, especially in the fields of research, competitiveness, sustainability and digitalisation."
Eric Trappier, ASD President & Chairman and CEO of Dassault Aviation, stated: "The strength of today’s European Aeronautical industry is the result of a combination of a highly qualified workforce, robust strategies, investments and continuous efforts on quality, safety, security, environment and innovation, in particular through large-scale European projects such as Clean Sky and SESAR. Against this background, regular policy discussions between EU Institutions and the Aeronautics sector are key to provide the right framework in which the sector can continue to thrive and deal with these challenges. In view of ongoing challenges, Industry has to accelerate the pace. Tomorrow’s success depends on the projects we build today and together."
