Paris Air Show Le Bourget 2023

The European Commission (represented by DG-RTD) and EREA (the Association of European Research Establishments in Aeronautics) have the pleasure to invite you to their joint event at the Paris Air Lab during the Paris Air Show Le Bourget 2023, on the topic of Circularity for a Sustainable Aviation Industry, on Tuesday, 20 June 2023, 16:30-17:30.

Following the European Green Deal and the release of the new Circular Economy Action Plan in 2020, European sectors need to transition to a Circular Economy, for a more sustainable and competitive Europe: What should aviation consider to become more circular and thus more sustainable? How is the aviation sector contributing to the key actions of the Circular Economy Action Plan? How do the current legislative and incentive frameworks support the implementation of circular practices in aviation? What is needed, in terms of technologies, legislation and financing? Follow the discussion of high-level panelists coming from politics, industry, and research at the Paris Airshow Le Bourget 2023.

The European Commission (represented by DG RTD) and EREA would be delighted if you would join us for the “ReThink Aviation – ReUse, ReCycle, RePair, ReBuild” event in the Paris Air Lab on Tuesday, 20 June 2023, from 16:30 to 17:30.
