Innovation happens when great ideas, people, and challenges intersect. At Airbus, we make these intersections happen. The result: breakthrough innovations that positively impact the world, and ignite excitement and passion for aerospace.
We are at the cusp of a third revolution in flight. That’s why at Airbus, we are laser focused on specific research and development areas that are going to be the key drivers in shaping the future of aerospace and improving the way we live, travel, and interact. Here are a few. Electric and hybrid-electric propulsion is the most promising technology to develop means of transportation with improved environmental performance that are less reliant on fossil fuels and use energy more efficiently. That’s why Airbus is investing heavily in research dedicated to developing all necessary technologies, and partnering with the best to make it a reality.
