Meeting of High-Level Group on Aviation and Aeronautics Research



Today Vice-President Kallas and Commissioner Geoghegan Quinn kicked off a High Level Group (HLG) on Aviation and Aeronautics Research, set to work out a new vision for the aviation sector by 2050.

Gathering representatives from infrastructure, vehicle, operation, fuel and research sectors, this group of 15 will feed its thoughts into what will be presented as a 2050 vision report at the AeroDays in Madrid next March 30th and April 1st.

VP Kallas made it clear that, together with Mrs. Geoghegan Quinn, he is determined to shift the approach from a supply-driven towards a truly demand-driven one: EU research money should be spent on real industrial priorities with a clear EU added value, so as to preserve EU growth and competitiveness worldwide, whilst meeting our energy and environmental challenges.
