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.

In order to present the opportunities of entrepreneurship and professional development offered by new technologies linked to the aerospace sector, our Center recently organized two informative days addressed to young students from different secondary education centers in Jaen and Seville.

The initiative was framed within the project "Aeroemprende", an initiative carried out by FADA-CATEC, in collaboration with the Regional Ministry of Economy and Knowledge of the Junta de Andalucia, which seeks to detect and analyze business opportunities in the aerospace industry and promote the approach to the entrepreneur of innovative technologies in this field.

Thus, on the one hand, more than 125 students from the SAFA Villacarrillo, Mercedarias Villacarrillo and IES Las Villas Villacarrillo centers visited the facilities of our ATLAS Center in Jaen, along with Center's director, Anastasio Sánchez, and other CATEC engineers. The students saw a flight demonstration of drones and participated in an informative talk about the opportunities that these technologies represent for entrepreneurship and their professional future.

On the other hand, the IES San Jose de la Rinconada (Seville) hosted another informative session with students of the last years of secondary education, who were equally interested in knowing in detail the possibilities of professional and business development in the aerospace field. The talk also served to encourage students to pursue engineering or technological studies.
