The Institute for Sustainable Aviation (ISA) held its second workshop on trajectories for the future of aviation on Friday 15 December.

Welcomed at the Manufacture des Tabacs by Hugues Kenfack, President of Toulouse Capitole University, and Stéphane Mouton, Professor of Law (UTC) and member of the ISA’s CODIR, more than 75 students, researchers, teachers and industry executives came to explore a wide range of disciplines (economics, law, history, meteorology, physical and computer sciences) to broaden their vision of the future of aviation.

The speakers – Louis Devoyon, Paula Navarro, Matthieu Plu, François Gallard, Thierry Poinsot and Elise Roy de Belleplaine – addressed  issues such as the cross-influences between air transport and society, industrial organisation, decision-making tools for energy transition, limiting persistent condensation trails, the role of hydrogen and combustion safety in the energy mix, and the law on new technologies to meet the challenges of decarbonising aviation.

To close the workshop, Laurent Joly, Director of the Institute for Sustainable Aviation,  summarized the work presented and the discussions it generated.

Appointment is given in June 2024 for the next edition.
