As part of the SME Instrument Business Acceleration Services, global market leader in aeronautics, Airbus, is hosting SME Instrument grantees to a company day in Hamburg, Germany January 30, 2018. A limited number of hand-picked SME Instrument companies will have the opportunity to pitch and present their business cases and their ideas, network with Airbus product managers, research and technology scouts, procurement representatives and meet with affiliated companies.

The event itself is generally open to all innovative approaches linked to Aviation but we also want to focus on the areas of Aircraft Production (e.g. automation, digitalization, supply chain management, advanced and eco-efficient manufacturing processes), Aircraft Development (e.g. air conditioning and power management systems, cabin and cabin system, connectivity, advanced testing) and Services (maintenance and spare part management).

Prepare yourself to make a short pitch about your company, followed by a short question and answer session. Following the presentations, participants are given the chance to have informal conversations, to get a deep insight on the current challenges and the research done by Airbus and their partners. 

Furthermore, on the day before the SME Instrument companies will have the opportunity to attend an exclusive networking event. Meet and exchange with fellow SME Instrument companies and network with representatives from Airbus. 

Opportunities for SME Instrument Companies

Privileged access to a world-leading company with potential to initiate strategic partnerships along with increased visibility and access to new markets.

Business meetings with relevant business counterparts based on your company profile • Pitching session in front of key persons inside Airbus and Tier 1 suppliers.
