Airbus Group is already a leader in each domain in which it operates: it has achieved parity with Boeing in the commercial aircraft segment, is the No. 1 helicopter company in the world, the European leader in space business and second in Europe in the defence sector. Moreover, since the Group’s foundation in 2000, it has increased its revenues by 145% and its annual order intake by 346%.
Accelerating the pace of innovation
In order to maintain its leading position and accelerate the pace of innovation, Airbus Group is committed to breaking down barriers and forging cross-industry cooperation. It is expanding its global network of technology incubators, academic partnerships and accelerators to speed up time-to-market and capitalise on innovative and transformational technologies and business models.
The Company recognises the need to be bold and its Airbus Ventures corporate venture capital fund – led by François Auque and Thomas d’Halluin – and the A³ innovation outpost – led by Rodin Lyasoff – in Silicon Valley represent a strategic location from which to engage with innovative players worldwide.
