Segment meetings – Aircraft Manufacturing

Once or twice a year we organize segment meetings for our members. During the segment meetings we offer the opportunity to discuss current topics with colleagues within your segment. This time, the NAG deliberately opted to disconnect the segment meetings from the General Members' Meeting. There was often too little time during the General Members' Meeting to give sufficient attention to the specific themes of the segment meetings. The choice for this was also motivated by the feedback we received from you.

We would like to invite you to the segment meetings with (New Year) networking drinks afterwards on Thursday 31 January from 13:30 – 17:30. We are pleased that KLM Engineering & Maintenance (KLM E&M) will host this meeting at KLM’s Headquarters in Amstelveen.

Time schedule for the afternoon:
13:30    Welcome with coffee/tea
14:00    Plenary session: presentation by the team of the innovation lab “The MRO Lab”’ of KLM E&M     We start with a plenary session in which the team of the innovation lab “the MRO lab” of KLM
E&M gives you an impression of the innovative projects they are working on.
14:30    Segment meetings
16.30    Network drink
17:30    End of program

We have done our best to find a current topic for each segment that is interesting for everyone. See the result below. Soon you will receive further information about the content/speakers.

You can choose which segment meeting you want to participate in. Although most members opt for the segment meeting that is connected to their activities. If your company is interested in participating in multiple sessions, feel free to sign up your colleagues as well.

Aircraft Manufacturing
"How can the manufacturing industry use its capacities for CO2 reduction in the short, medium and long term?"

A lot has changed in a short time. Two years ago, turnover and employment were the main pillars for the industry. Now a lot of attention is focused on a sustainable aviation (industry). Air traffic is growing fast. However, technological developments are going too slow to also reach climate goals. We must therefore speed up technical developments, develop breakthrough technologies and start looking at alternatives. The Ministry of Infrastructure and Watermanagement  has asked us to map out how we could use our capacities for CO2 reduction in the short, medium and long term. In the session questions arise as:

• Are you already working on innovations in the field of sustainability? Also consider innovations that you have not done from the point of view of sustainability, but that actually are
• Do you have plans for sustainable innovations in the future?
• How could we accelerate technological developments? We want to see with you how we can use your or our (shared) capacities to achieve breakthrough technologies or alternatives?

We look forward to welcoming you at KLM’s headquarters on January 31, 2019
