The University of Waterloo and the Region of Waterloo will host a Sustainable Aeronautics Summit at the Region’s International Airport. The event will profile world-leading sustainable aeronautical research, technology, and education. The Summit aims to bring together a unique ecosystem in the region to catalyze sustainable innovations in air transportation.
The Waterloo Institute for Sustainable Aeronautics (WISA), a university-based research institute, is leading the summit. Through academic, industry, and government collaborations, the summit will foster interactions to seek solutions to the most critical industry barriers in achieving social, economic, and environmental sustainability. These include environmental areas such as optimized air navigation, sustainable aviation fuels, hydrogen and electric propulsion. It will also prioritize social sustainability efforts to support a sector that has been facing widespread personnel shortages through aviation training innovations, augmented- and virtual reality, and artificial intelligence-informed instruction.
The one-day Sustainable Aeronautics Summit to be held on October 5, 2022, at the Region of Waterloo International Airport’s Operations Centre will include a full educational program with world-leading speakers, including Commander Chris Hadfield, as well as a trade show. Speakers will highlight new and emerging innovations in social, environmental, and economic sustainability in air transportation.
