After six months of hard work and intense coaching, Airbus’ BizLab operation in Hamburg, Germany showed off the “fruits of its labour” at this global aerospace business accelerator’s first “Demo Day” event.
Airbus BizLab announced the successful culmination of its second season through a flagship event in Bengaluru.
Airbus has expanded its global network of BizLabs by opening a fourth campus in Madrid (Spain) after Toulouse (France), Hamburg (Germany) and Bangalore (India). This milestone is part of Airbus’ strategy to establish a global network of aerospace business accelerators.
A major breakthrough in electric propulsion for long-range aircraft could soon be on the horizon. The presence of a cold source, in the form of liquid hydrogen, alongside superconducting technologies promises to unlock new possibilities. Today, the ASCEND demonstrator project by Airbus UpNext aims to mature these technologies to significantly boost the performance of electric- and hybrid-electric propulsion systems in future low-emission aircraft.
