The 4th SESAR Innovation Days will take place in Madrid, Spain, from 25 to 27 November 2014. The event will be hosted by Universidad Politécnica de Madrid.

Long-term and innovative research is pivotal to the future evolution of ATM. It addresses novel and/or unconventional ideas, concepts and technologies that contribute to the development of a safe, competitive and sustainable future for the European ATM System.

SESAR actively supports long-term and innovative research in the field of ATM through exploratory research activities within the programme.

The SESAR Innovation Days is the main forum for the dissemination of exploratory research results and it focuses explicitly on long-term and innovative research ideas. Download the full agenda.

The forum will also present the SESAR Research Networks, Projects and PhD research. The event will seek contributions from the ATM research community through an open call which can be downloaded here.
