Airbus China Innovation Centre

Airbus China Innovation Centre

Fast-tracking innovation in the heart of China

At the Airbus China Innovation Centre (ACIC), we invent aerospace solutions that make a real difference in people’s lives. Today, Airbus is accelerating some of the most promising and disruptive technologies that will transform the future of flight.

 

Mission

ACIC is Airbus’ second innovation centre after A3 in California’s Silicon Valley. We are ideally located at Shenzhen, China, one of the world’s leading innovation hotspots.

Here, we work to identify, explore and accelerate new growth opportunities. Our mission is three-fold:

·         To shape the future of flight

·         To fully leverage expertise of local talent, technology and partners

·         To collaborate with Airbus teams across business units to develop new offers and champion new ways of working.
