NVvL Symposium 'SESAR and The Netherlands: Contributions and Benefits' op 14 maart 2013


Donderdag 14 Maart 2013
Schiphol Airport, Schiphol Auditorium

The SESAR (Single European Sky ATM Research) programme is one of the most ambitious research and development projects ever launched by the European Community. The SESAR Programme is the technological and operational dimension of the Single European Sky (SES) initiative to meet future capacity and safety needs.

The mission of the SESAR Joint Undertaking is to develop a modernized air traffic management system for Europe. This future system will ensure the safety and fluidity of air transport over the next thirty years, will make flying more environmentally friendly and reduce the costs of air traffic management.

The Netherlands has a strong Air Transport sector with KLM, Schiphol, LVNL, EUROCONTROL's Maastricht Upper Area Control Centre and a strong support from the Ministry of Infrastructure and
Environment, KNMI, NLR and TU-Delft.

SESAR and The Single European Sky will have a great impact on the Netherlands AirTransport Sector as well as on the operations of the Netherlands Defence Forces. In the one-day symposium the main Netherlands players in SESAR will explain their involvement in SESAR and The Single European Sky.
