  • OPTICS Final Dissemination Event — Is safety research making us safer?... [more]

    Thu 16 March 2017


The 2nd OPTICS Expert Workshop “From Hazard Management to Operational Resilience” took place at ONERA in Toulouse on the 28th and 29th of April, attracting more than 60 experts from 36 aviation organisations coming from a dozen European countries, and included keynote presentations from Airbus, NASA, EUROCONTROL and EASA.

The workshop focussed on four key aviation safety areas:

  • Weather
  • Data and Safety Intelligence
  • Self-healing systems

A total of nine workshops took place during the two-day event, resulting in prioritised research ideas for each area. These are now being processed, and a report will be issued via the OPTICS website at the end of May.
The four keynote presentations can be found here.

We would like to give our sincere thanks to all those who participated in this event, and will contact each of you as soon as the report is available.
