We want to introduce a new thematic field in the Interactive Zone at the TRA 2018: Aviation

Aviation is one of the most advanced technology sectors in Europe. Close to 700 billion euro of the European GDP are generated in this sector. In Aviation, there is a global trend towards more efficient, greener, smarter and safer air transport and challenging goals have been defined. Thus demand for innovative products, technologies and services is rising. Constant growth of the demand for air transport is anticipated until 2050.

In Austria, nationally promoted research, technology and innovation in the area of aviation has seen a remarkable upsurge over the last decade, to which the funding technology and innovation programme Take Off, initiated by the Austrian Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology and managed by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency, has contributed greatly.
