25 April 2018 : Innovation and Leadership in Aerospace ( ILA )

On 25 April, EPF was invited by the European Commission to speak and participate in a panel about Aviation Safety “Challenges and ways forward for a safe future” (ILA: Innovation and Leadership in Aerospace). We were asked to give our views on the project program and feedback on missing points or areas on which a higher priority is needed.

The ILA Berlin Air Show brings together over 1.000 highly specialized exhibitors and welcomes more than 125.000 visitors from all over the world.

After the presentation of the report by the writers and investigators of 160 EU safety in aviation research projects on safety in the EU, the panel of users presented their views and highlighted the main points missing and their organisations’ priorities. The panel was composed of users: a safety authority of a country, the representative of an airport and Willy Smeulders from EPF.

The EPF presentation can be downloaded here. The report on Aviation Safety “Challenges and ways forward for a safe future” is available here.
