In the context of the implementation of Assembly Resolution A40-27 Innovation in Aviation, ICAO has undertaken a series of initiatives aimed at engaging more with the innovation community. This webinar will provide an update on these initiatives and will also allow to go through some exciting products and technological innovations, which have the potential to re-shape our conception of flying and should be accompanied with a thorough framework on air navigation efficiency and safety.
