Creating breakthrough technologies

The ability to develop groundbreaking technologies is one of our key assets, and our people make it happen.

Investing in innovation

To maintain our position as a global leader, Airbus Group is committed to cultivating a culture of innovation. We spend over €3 billion annually on research and development. We hold approximately 37,000 patents worldwide. Over 1,000 scientists and researchers, including doctorates and interns, work at our facilities in France, Germany, UK, Spain, USA, Canada, Singapore, India and China.

Innovation takes many forms at Airbus Group, from early-stage research to product development, from cyber-security to enhancing existing platforms, manufacturing processes and quality.

The quality of our innovation is recognised around the world. In 2013, Thomson Reuters listed the Group among its Top 100 Global Innovators, while Booz & Co placed us in the top 50.

We are always looking for people who are capable of improving the solutions we develop and inventing new solutions to meet the complex challenges of living in a more secure and sustainable world.

Developing the e-aircraft of the future

The electric E-Fan training aircraft is a highly innovative technology experimental demonstrator based on an all-composite construction. Airbus Group and its partners are aiming to perform research and development to construct a series version of the E-Fan and propose an industrial plan for a production facility close to Bordeaux Airport.

Airbus Group is investing significantly in developing more eco-efficient aircraft. As an example, more than 80% of R&D spending at Airbus, our largest Division, is related to environmental efficiency.

Underpinning our eco-efficiency efforts is our Eco-Design approach to reducing the environmental impact of the Group’s products and manufacturing.

Also, we are currently working on achieving the ultimate in eco-efficient aircraft: silent, CO2-free, all-electric flight for both unmanned and passenger aircraft in the next 3 decades. We are currently involved in a number of technology programmes that could eventually lead to an all-electric helicopter and a 90-seat-passenger regional airliner with fully electric or hybrid propulsion.
