ICAO launches 2022 Innovation Fair ahead of its 41st Assembly

The 2022 ICAO Innovation Fair kicked off yesterday, with the theme “Innovation for Enhanced Resilience in International Civil Aviation”, beginning a three-day series of panels and presentations on the latest innovations impacting global air transport and the challenges and opportunities they present to regulators and industry.

The event is being conducted to provide a critical and strategic opportunity for conceptualization ahead of the ICAO Assembly, which opens immediately following it, on 27 September, permitting industry and government leaders to reflect on how technological and process innovations can help build a more resilient and sustainable international civil aviation network. 
ICAO Council President Salvatore Sciacchitano and Secretary General Juan Carlos Salazar joined Participants for Day 1 in touring the Innovation Exhibition, and heard a series of expert panels discuss the importance of accelerator and incubator programmes, the regulatory challenges of adopting cutting edge technologies into the aviation ecosystem, urban air mobility, and the latest uses of flight data to drive improved emissions reductions and greener flights, among other topics.
President Salvatore Sciacchitano, in opening the 2022 Innovation Fair, underscored that “the increased pace at which innovations are developed today, and the involvement of more diverse stakeholders, have together compelled ICAO to consider how the Organization can enhance its responsiveness and relevance in this fast-changing environment.”
