Good forecasts

For the year ended 2018 we are proud of having developed a good job and having achieved new milestones for the Andalusian aerospace and technology sector, but more importantly, it starts a new one, 2019, with the feeling that we have a very promising future ahead. Not only for our center, but for all those who participate in the aeronautical industry and the innovation environment and technological development linked to this sector, which boosts the economy in our community.

In our specific case, new horizons are opened with the participation in new European projects such as SAFEDRONE, DOMUS, RIB-AM or RIMA, all of them linked with the development and application of new technologies of unmanned systems (drones) for their integration in airspace or implementation of new advanced manufacturing systems (such as 3D printing) for the aerospace industry. Also with the organization of important events like the hosting of the II International Tournament on Emergency Service Robots of the European Robots League (ERL), which will take place in our facilities in Seville next February.

We must highlight another unprecedented milestone in Andalusia, such as the Presidency of Seville of the Community of Ariane cities for 2019, an event in which FADA-CATEC collaborates and which will mean that the city of Seville becomes the ideal showcase to demonstrate the potential of our sector and the focus of attracting investment and business opportunities to boost our companies and technology activities in the field of space, through the environment offered by the so-called New Space. This event will have a program full of activities that will also serve for the scientific dissemination of what the Space sector represents and the applications that the whole society enjoys today thanks to the development in this field.

We have, therefore, an exciting year ahead, full of good forecasts and new challenges and illusions for both the Andalusian and Spanish aerospace sector. Let us take advantage of this to continue working among all of us - industry, administrations, technological agents and social agents - to keep on growing and positioning it as one of the most relevant in the European and international environment.

CATEC, presents a new version of the Foro Transfiere
Last February 14 and 15, the seventh edition of the Foro Transfiere, the European Forum for Science, Technology and Innovation, was celebrated. More than 4,000 participants from 1,500 different companies, public entities, and research and technology centers attended with the objective of establishing relations and stimulating collaborations in R+D and overall innovation in different industrial sectors.

Our Center once again returned to attend this important scientific and technological event. Specifically, our Center participated in various round table discussions in the scientific program and in different meetings to foster collaboration with other businesses and entities and establish possible business agreements.

Our head of the Division of Materials and Processes, Fernando Lasagni, participated in a round table discussion about Functional Printing and Additive Manufacturing with other high-profile speakers like the Director of the Technology Platform 3NEO, Carlos Ruiz de León, and other business leaders from CEIT-IK4, PACKNET (the Spanish Technology Platform for Packaging), ITENE (the Spanish Technology Institute of Packaging, Transportation, and Logistics), MANU-KET (the Spanish Technology Platform for Advanced Manufacturing), REGEMAT 3D, AIJU (Spanish Technology Institute for Children’s Leisure Products), the University of Navarre and the Spanish Technology Platform, FOTONICA 21.

Additionally, we were present in the Printing Innovation Zone, a qualified zone created by the Spanish Technology Aerospace Platform, where we also made a presentation about CATEC and Additive Manufacturing.
