Space. The final frontier for Airbus?
From the Pioneers of change Summit, innovators from the "Munich Ecosystem" - the multistakeholder hub of companies, startups, manufacturing and academia working on space exploration, talked about the importance of visions during volatile times. For an established company like Airbus, the challenge is to remain agile and inventive. One of the ways to achieve this is to partner with startups as client - but also an enabler.
Airbus' Christian Lindener, Head of Innovation, explained that in the aerospace industry, it takes 10-15 years to develop a new programme, "so we are looking now at what the world would look like if we could fly with zero emissions by 2035. In terms of innovation, we’ll see developments in hydrogen technology and UAMs, which will drastically change the way we travel in the future."
