Mobility and its pillars of transport (air, inland and maritime) are at the very center of our socio-economic fabric. They underpin social connections and facilitate access to goods and services, including trade, jobs, health care and education. In today’s world, mobility by air, road and water is all about efficiencies, speed, interconnectivity and accessibility by all. However, this raises the issue about sustainability. The UN predicts that by 2050 two thirds of the world population will live in cities1. How can we adapt and enhance today’s already-stretched mobility system for it to respond to our expectations and increased demands? How can mobility be reinvigorated for it to be sustainable and support the 2030 Agenda of Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)?
"The year is 2043 and the aviation community is preparing to convene at ICAO HQ 99 years after the signing of the Chicago Convention in 1944."
We are happy to announce that the most recent edition of the catalogue includes 94 start ups and companies. Each entry includes a concise description of their concept, prototype, product or new technology, their most relevant specifications, and high-resolution pictures. This information was collected directly from those working on these innovations.
The Future of Aviation catalogue is usually distributed to the public in a hard copy version during ICAO innovation related events. However, this time we will be able to reach out to a wider audience by making it available online on the Innovation Series website!
