11th International Symposium on NDT in Aerospace
COFREND and CEA list are pleased to welcome you in France for NDT in Aerospace, 2019.
One hundred and twenty-eight years after Clément Ader’s first flight, France is the world second largest aeronautics and space market, with a turnover of around $ 70 billion and some 190,000 employees, thanks to the performances of its industrialists like Airbus, Safran, Dassault Aviation, Ariane Group, Thales …
France is, together with the United States, the only country exporting aircrafts, business jets, helicopters, fighter jets and the main contributor of the European space industry. Aeronautics and space are the second largest French manufacturing industry in terms of R & D expenses, behind the automotive industry.
Paris and its region Ile-de-France, are characterized by a marked positioning in the design and the supply of aeronautical equipment, including aircraft engines. Every 4 seconds, a plane takes off in the world with an engine assembled in Île-de-France. It is also one of the main French centres for space design and production, including the site of Les Mureaux (78) where the rocket Ariane 6 is partially assembled. Last specificity, the regional aeronautical industry has a strong defense component, with the design and manufacture of aircrafts, drones, missiles and embedded electronics.
The quality of the training is also a major element. The creation of a world class Campus for trades and qualifications around the aeronautics, supported by the French government and the key actors of the sector was recently born in the southern region of Paris, as well as a training platform supported by Safran and subcontractors in the sector.
Paris-Saclay, place of the NDT in Aerospace 2019 conference, brings together around a world-class academic hub, higher education institutions, research organizations and technology small and medium companies. This scientific concentration makes the Paris-Saclay cluster be one of the most important innovation centres in the world.
