Aerópolis has something to celebrate thanks to the launch of two new initiatives that will enable keep looking with optimism to the future of the Park and the aerospace sector in Andalusia. These two projects represent a further step in development and growth of this industry, both from a business point of view as technological and industrial.
I mean, first, to the launch of the Business and Aerospace Innovation Forum driven by the Innovation and Development Agency of Andalusia (IDEA Agency) jointly with Aeropolis to attract leading contractors and Tier One aerospace business in Europe and worlwide to know our companies and their activities within the supply chain, and thus enhance trade relations and the possibility of new agreements and contracts that are translated in more wealth and employment.
After the success in the first two sessions with the Portuguese company OGMA and the US multinational Boeing -the largest aircraft manufacturer in the world-, we expect to consolidate this initiative as an essential meeting point for companies settled in Aerópolis and a new way of rapprochement and visibility for the international sector.
Secondly, our Technology Aerospace Park has been chosen for the location of the first Technology Incubator of aerospace companies in Spain and Europe, a project that is already underway and will be operational by mid-year through the Chamber of Commerce of Seville and Incyde Foundation. It is a pioneering initiative in the aviation field, supported by the key industry players in Andalusia, which already demonstrates its suitability and the great value that we are sure will contribute to the generation of knowledge and technology development.
These projects will contribute to improve the competitiveness of aerospace companies and their strategic positioning in the global market. They represent the future of the sector in Seville and Andalusia, knowing that it will only be possible if we are still committed to the investment in R + D + i, internationalization, continuous improvement in the supply chain and the diversification of activities and customers.
