With steady pace to Le Bourget

We are practically in the half-way point of the year fulfilling with a firm step the strategic line that marks the course of our team, that is none other than to continue driving the R&D in the aerospace sector, for its real application in the industry, and to help our business to increase its technological competitiveness that is so important in a global market, like aviation is. In these months we have started new projects of national and international state-of-the-art, we have worked with companies to move forward in the improvement of its technological innovation, we have participated in conferences and meetings with companies and organizations in the sector and we have even supported administrations to help diagnose and define strategic plans for the development of the aerospace industry and the economy for the next few years.

With this good work, and backed by our trajectory in the last decade, FADA-CATEC is attended Paris Air Show Le Bourget, the largest aerospace world meeting in which big companies, contractors and agents involved in the development of new technologies in this field meet together in just a few days. And we have participated in the Andalusian official delegation that travelled to the neighbouring country in order to bring value to the evolution and growth of our industry, but also to project the great potential for the future.

As we have been doing in recent years, we went to Le Bourget with the aim of presenting our latest technologies, services and advances in R&D for the sector, to strengthen our ties with the companies and assisting organizations (partners or potentials), as well as to detect and analyze opportunities for technological collaboration that they can capture in new projects for our team, but also involving the participation of Andalusian and Spanish companies.

The work and cooperation between research institutes and companies continues to be fundamental in order to contribute greater added value to our products and services, and that is why we must not neglect to take advantage of this type of events in order to reinforce our position as a point of reference in the international aerospace outlook, and, above all, continue to be the driving force.

Last April, the city council of Seville, through its Area of Economics, Trade and Institutional Relations, held a day in which different social and economic agents of the city analyzed the first diagnostic studies on the different productive sectors of the capital and its metropolitan area (logistics and transportation, industry and aeronautics) that they have made for the revision of its Strategic Plan 2020-30. This was the first meeting to advance a document containing the planning of labor and economic development of the city in the long run, defining sectors and market niches, as well as growth opportunities, through collective work with other entities and organizations.

This roundtable was attended by our director, Joaquin Rodriguez Grau, also president of the Helice Cluster, along with directors of the Airbus Group, the Port of Seville, the Confederation of Employers of Seville, Fedeme, the Chamber of Commerce of Seville, the companies Hispacold, Siderurgica Sevillana and Sevisur Logística, and the Business Parks Association of Seville, as well as representatives of the trade unions CCOO and UGT and the president of the Economic and Social Council of Seville, Milagro Martín. The event was chaired by Carmen Castreño, the delegate of Economy of the City of Seville, and was attended by the Deputy Minister of Finance and Public Administration of the City Council, Joaquin Castillo, and Gaspar Llanes, General Secretary of Economy of the Regional Government of Andalusia. About 200 people attended the conference.

Some of the contributions and conclusions of this first meeting of debate highlighted the need for a better interconnection between companies located in Seville; the bet on research, development and innovation; the business alliances to win size; the collaboration between industry and their own services companies; the transfer of technologies; the revitalization of the business parks; specific training of employees and of small and medium entrepreneurs in new market niches; the boost to sustainable mobility and electric vehicles; the cooperation in research.
