Graphic element Diary Note: EU Commission launches Advisory Council for Aeronautics Research
At the Paris Air Show, in Le Bourget, France - On June 19, 2001
     
 

"Le Bourget" is the place where the media can discover the world's leading aeronautics technologies. The renowned Paris Air show has also been selected to be the first meeting point of a new Advisory Council for Aeronautics Research in Europe (ACARE). Journalists covering aeronautics and/or research issues are invited to the opening session of the Council's first gathering, where they will be able to talk with senior staff from the European Commission as well as members of the newly established Advisory Council.

Background
 

During this year's Aeronautics Days in Hamburg, EU Commissioner Philippe Busquin unveiled Europe's vision to become a global leader in the field of aeronautics while serving society's needs. The report on "European Aeronautics: A Vision for 2020" was prepared by a group of aeronautics personalities and its recommendations were welcomed by the industry, research and media community as an important first step in the right direction.

The "Vision 2020" report stressed Europe's need for a high level Advisory Council who would develop and implement a strategic approach to European aeronautics research. Only five months later, the new committee is ready to begin its work.

 
Programme
 

The ACARE group will be welcomed by Commissioner Busquin in the morning of June 19. Journalists are invited to join this first meeting of the group, which will be followed by a media question and answer session. There will be further opportunities for dialogue on the EU's strategy to strengthen the aeronautics sector during a media cocktail with key European Commission representatives and members of the ACARE group. Interviews can be arranged on request.

Media representatives interested in the EU's activities in the field of aeronautics will also have the opportunity to learn about key EU research projects during a number of informal information sessions at selected air-show stands.
