Innovation in ICAO: Digitization of Innovations in Aviation


28 July, 2022 at 0900 hrs (EDT)



Registration is now closed.

A recording of the webinar will be avilable on-demand on ICAO TV here.


Similarly to many organizations, ICAO has been digitizing aspects of its work, to facilitate access to documentation and improve internal processes. When applied to innovations in aviation, digitization can help access complex information more efficiently and provide the opportunity to interact with the aviation community at large.


In addition, the digital assets can be inserted into virtual experiences to demonstrate how they can be integrated into existing processes and help understand their benefits. Please join us as we take a deep dive into this digital version of Innovations in Aviation – and let us know how we can make it better.



The aviation industry, regulators and academia.
