May 13, 2015 – Got a great idea? The Airbus BizLab initiative can help convert innovative ideas into valuable business. Airbus has opened its first call for projects entries after the business accelerator was launched on March 9 this year. Project proposals can be submitted from now until June 11th, 2015 HERE. After the selection process, Airbus will offer early-stage projects wide-ranging support in the form of a six-month “acceleration program”.
The selected project candidates will have access to a large number of Airbus coaches, experts and mentors in various domains (technology, legal, finance, marketing, etc); free office space, a dedicated mentor; learn and act sessions; access to prototyping and test facilities; a demo day with Airbus decision makers, partners, subsidiaries and customers; and venture capital.
The projects within the acceleration program will include the development of a product, a service, an application related to augmented reality, as well as data analysis and digitalization, which can be used in the aeronautical industry.
“Now the time for real action starts. Collecting and studying in detail the different and challenging innovative proposals will be a very much exciting part of our job,” said Bruno Gutierres, head of Airbus BizLab. “The world is rich with people with brilliant ideas and our goal is to select the ones that will benefit our industry and our communities the most.”
