Air Transport & Operations Symposium 2010
Air Transport: "Adding value in the 21st Century"
The hot topic of ATOS 2010 is how air transport can evolve to continue to add value in the 21st Century? Some of the key aerospace value challenges are typified by the SESAR goals for 2020 in being able to handle a threefold increase in capacity, improving safety by a factor of 10, reducing environmental impact by 10% and reducing expenses by a half. However, this is all in the context of our current financial crises and the need for industry stakeholders to remain solvent and competitive. ATOS 2010 will consider these issues as we go into the 2nd century of aviation! Consequently, the international aerospace community, both scientific and industrial are invited to this value adding symposium.

Keynotes include:
– John-Paul Clarke, Associate Professor in the School of Aerospace Engineering and the Director of the Air Transportation Laboratory (ATL) at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech)
– John Hsu, Senior Manager of the Systems Engineering Department of the Boeing Company
– Peter de Swert, Executive Vice President Operations of KLM Engineering & Maintenance

Exhibition floor
Additionally to workshops an exhibition floor with aerospace companies (KLM, STORK, etc.) will also be a part of the symposium. The exhbition floor is free to visit.

AEROSPACE Education 2020 
The AEROSPACE Education 2020 symposium aims to implement technological aerospace innovations within education in a faster sense, in such a way that education can support the continuous developments in technology, logistics, operations and facilities. This initiative is a joint effort of four Dutch aerospace educational organizations.
Hogeschool INHolland Delft, Hogeschool van Amsterdam, Delft University of Technology and the ROC of Amsterdam are of the opinion that students should be better prepared in their future field of activity. A clear vision on the aerospace industry is lacking in the Netherlands and Europe, making an effective adaptability of education on the developments within the different segments difficult. This cooperation is a signal to the industry in taking a joint responsibility when it comes to educating students to future professionals. Kick-off of this cooperation is the AEROSPACE Education 2020 symposium  which will take place at the 16th of April 2010 at the Hogeschool van Amsterdam.

Speakers include: Michel Peters, general director of the Dutch National Aerospace Laboratory and Prof. dr. Alberto Bazzan, head of New Business Development of IATA will present their vision. They will discuss the themes “Innovation and Aerospace education” and “The importance of well educated personnel within a changing airline environment”.
