FUCAM 1st Ideation Workshop in Espoo, Finland

After initiating its activities in February 2016, during its kick-off meeting on the AIRBUS GROUP premises in Munich, Germany, FUCAM focused on the definition of various concept proposals and design drivers on cabin space architectures and advanced on-board systems for the Asian market. This phase started with the organization of the 1st Ideation Workshop, conducted successfully from 1st to 2nd June 2016 in Espoo, Finland. The Workshop was hosted by the AALTO Design Factory and was attended by representatives of all individual entities involved in the project. In this transcontinental joint workshop, Japanese and European partners had the unique opportunity to establish long-term trust partnerships, to participate in fruitful discussions and to share their viewpoint in the frame of identifying new concept ideas that could lead to the implementation of a future aircraft cabin dedicated to the Asian market. During the meeting, all participants agreed that the overall progress of the FUCAM project could be regarded as rather satisfactory since only a few actions were identified with low impact on project progression and planning. Moreover, in general, all participants were content with the constructive discussions took place and the significant emerging results of the meeting. Finally, it is worth noting that some initial thoughts were expressed concerning the form of the next FUCAM Ideation Workshop face to face meeting, which is planned to be held during the second half of 2017.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 690674.
