Airbus to Establish Tech Hub in Japan

Airbus has announced plans to set up a Tech Hub in Japan, aiming to foster partnerships that will enhance research, technology, and innovation in aerospace, preparing for the next generation of aircraft.

The new Airbus Tech Hub, coordinated from Tokyo, will focus on three key research areas, including the development of new materials, decarbonization technologies, robotics and automation.

The launch of the Airbus Tech Hub is supported by the Japanese and French governments and was announced during Viva Technology 2024 in Paris.

In attendance were representatives from the Japan Embassy in France, the French Directorate-General for Civil Aviation (DGAC), the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO), and Airbus.

The Airbus Tech Hub in Japan is part of a global network developed by the European manufacturer, with similar ventures already launched this year in Singapore and the Netherlands. The Tech Hubs aim to foster collaboration among Airbus global R&T teams, industry leaders, local research communities, industry, and academic institutions.
