The tenth edition of the “Observatory on Europe” Forum took place in Brussels at the Cercle Royal Gaulois on Thursday, June 29, 2017. Prof Matthias Finger was among the speakers on “The Single European Sky for the Safety, Growth and Competitiveness of the EU Aviation Sector”.
Aviation is a strong driver of economic growth, jobs, trade and mobility for the European Union. It plays a crucial role in the EU economy and reinforces its global leadership position. Sustaining growth in air traffic in Europe and worldwide, while maintaining high standards of aviation safety and security, as well as reducing aviation’s environmental footprint and contributing to the fight against climate change: this is the challenge the Aviation sector is facing.
Prof Matthias Finger, Director of the Transport Area of the Florence School of Regulation, attended the roundtable organized by the Osservatorio Ambrosetti in partnership with Enav, and discussed the actions needed to ensure the European aviation sector remains competitive and reaps the benefits of a fast-changing and developing global economy.
Speakers at this high-level event were: Eamonn Brennan (Chief Executive and Board Member, Irish Aviation Authority); Filip Cornelis (Director for Aviation, DG Move, European Commission); Valerio De Molli (CEO and Managing Partner, The European House – Ambrosetti); Marian-Jean Marinescu (Member of the European Parliament); Roberta Neri (CEO, Enav); Luc Tygat (Strategy and Safety Management Director, EASA).
