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

    Thu 16 March 2017


The first OPTICS Dissemination Event Report has been released.

The event, named “Aviation Safety Research – Time to Take-off”, was held at the European Commission in Brussels on 17th and 18th December 2014.
The two-day conference was attended by more than seventy participants from aviation industry and research institutions including the European Commission, EASA, Eurocontrol, the FAA, Airbus, Boeing, and Lufthansa, and including leaders from major aviation programmes such as Single Sky, Clean Sky, SESAR and Horizon 2020’s Future Sky.

The conference took place in the context of ACARE’s Flight Path 2050 roadmap for safety: European air travel is very safe now, but how do we ensure that we are at least as safe, if not safer, by 2050, when there will be significantly more air traffic, and more varied traffic including drones and personal flying vehicles?
