An efficient and productive aviation sector can be a strong driver of economic growth. In order to support the development of the sector, the UAE General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) is committed to cultivating a culture of innovation. This will lead to economic expansion and the reduction of environmental risks in the air transportation services industry. This lecture explores how the focus on research and innovation throughout the sector not only leads to more efficient aircraft technology and operational practices within the industry, but also helps expand research capacity at universities, and develop skills across society.
