Airbus BizLab is a global aerospace business accelerator where startups and Airbus intrapreneurs speed up the transformation of innovative ideas into valuable businesses. The Airbus BizLab has developed a “hybrid” concept to closely collaborate with startups while allowing smaller organizations to better understand needs and ways of working of large groups.
Our intention is to open ourselves up to other eco-systems, thus we will not limit the scope of our collaboration with startups to the aeronautical industry. We will open it to different areas such as digitalization, data processing, communication networks, robotics. However the projects should be applicable for the aeronautical industry. We are looking for projects that include developments of a product, a service or an application for but not limited to the aerospace industry. Examples (non-exhaustive) are: Data analytics & Artificial Intelligence, Digital Design & Manufacturing, Autonomy & Robotics, Unmanned Aerial Vehicle & Urban Air Mobility, Electrification & Connectivity, VR & AR, New Space solutions & SmartCity as well as Blockchain & Cybersecurity. As additional search field, we are challenging start-ups for innovative concepts and technical solutions to the sustainable development goals (UN SDGs). However the projects should be applicable and have a potential use case for the aeronautical industry. Airbus BizLab is looking for startups with functional prototypes that can be developed into market-ready products within the programme.
