At the heart of the Paris Air Show, the Hall Concorde is putting the spotlight on technology innovations of the future.
Here, experts, start-ups and manufacturers welcome visitors to three complementary areas dedicated to discussion, information and experiments, all highlighting innovations of the future.

PICK UP YOUR INNOVATION – AN AREA DEDICATED TO INDUSTRIAL INNOVATION AND START-UPS

23 display areas will be focusing on the sector's manufacturers and start-ups

There will be 12 islands devoted to collaborative innovation in the aerospace sectors, laid out within circuits on three main themes:
  • The "Aeronautics" circuit: Aircraft of the future, Propulsion, Cleansky and Sustainable Aviation  
  • The "Digital & new application" circuit: Drones, Connectivity, SESAR/NextGen and UAF (French airport union)
  • The "Space" circuit: Launchers, ESA, ONERA (national aerospace studies and research office) and Earth Observation
Within these thematic circuits, there will be 10 islands dedicated to new players, where around 70 start-ups will present their projects and meet visitors and professionals in the sector during the Show.

Start-ups have their say

Twice a day, a CTO from the sector will present a keynote and introduce a session of six pitches from start-ups exhibiting in the Hall Concorde. Each start-up has 2 minutes to present a project or innovative product. 
 

VISIONARY HUB – A PLATFORM FOR CONFRONTING IDEAS

Each day, well-known figures and experts from various backgrounds (industrialists, engineers, scientists, sociologists, psychologist, artists, etc.)  come and discuss their visions of tomorrow's aerospace during "Battle conf": short talks featuring pairs of speakers who interact with audiences (a 15-minute talk by each speaker + 15 minutes of discussion/debate, coordinated by a presenter).
 

EXPERIMENTAL GATES – AN AREA FOR IMMERSIVE TRY-OUTS

These six areas are dedicated to virtual reality in the aerospace sector, with the following themes:
  • Inside a cockpit
  • Flying like a bird
  • Become an astronaut
  • Space discovery
  • Experience Constellium
  • Experience Accenture
Come and try out some fascinating immersive experiences, seeing through the eyes of Thomas Pesquet or a fighter pilot on a mission.  

This programme is for information only and may be subject to change.

The selection and programming of start-ups and conferences are closed for the 2017 Paris Air Lab.
