In good health

We reached the middle of the year and it’s time to take stock of the path of the Andalusian aerospace sector, just after the celebration a few weeks ago of the largest business event in the industry in our country, the Aerospace & Defense Meetings 2018. An event that once again made Seville the epicenter of national and international aerospace industry, attended by the main actors of the sector, both the large tractors as Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier and Embraer, as the main contractors and national and international Tier 1 , with, whom the attending companies could maintain business contacts and explore ways of collaboration or contracts for the future.

The numbers of this fourth edition of ADM Sevilla showed that it is a fully consolidated event, and that, in part, reflect the good health of the aerospace industry in Spain and Andalusia: more than 1,100 professionals from 350 companies from 28 countries attended the fair. In the country, more than 8,000 business meetings were held among the attendees, and some 70 companies and technological infrastructures were visited. In CATEC we witnessed this, contributing to strengthen the ties of technological development that our community has in some of the areas that are called to lead the future of the sector, such as advanced robotics or Industry 4.0.

Beyond these quantitative figures it also should be noted the announcement by the President of Andalusia, Susana Diaz, on the development and implementation in the short term of the new Strategic Plan for the aerospace sector. It will focus on aspects such as innovation, development, research, talent and the competitiveness and productivity of our industry. This new plan it will allow us to take a new leap and face the great challenges of the sector in a global context, that is always difficult and that can generate uncertainties.

After ADM Sevilla, the Andalusian industry is reinforced and sets course for new markets to continue promoting its internationalization, competitiveness and know-how in the sector. The next stop is the Farnborough fair, where I am convinced that our companies will continue advancing in that goal to position and reaffirm ourselves in the top positions of the global aerospace industry.

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.
