The SESAR Innovation Days (SIDs) are the main vehicle for SESAR Joint Undertaking to share progress and disseminate exploratory research results. Unlike other scientific events in air traffic management (ATM) research, the SIDs focus explicitly on exploratory research. Organised annually since 2010, the SIDS have become a landmark event in the European aviation research calendar. The SIDs event is strengthened with the support of Engage, the SESAR knowledge transfer network.

Given the current situation with Covid-19 and the associated impact on travel and gatherings, the 2020 edition of the SIDs took place online from 7th to 10th December in a virtual capacity. 

Despite not being able to take place as a physical event in 2020, Over 1,200 representatives from the European and global ATM communities registered to the event to present their research and discuss important topics that will define the future of ATM. 

The SIDs are based on an open call soliciting contributions from ATM research. Exhibitions and poster, keynotes and networking events will provide further opportunities to learn about interesting projects and meet like-minded researchers.
