Maximum attention on the part of the Region towards a strategic sector with enormous potential such as aerospace which opens up development prospects and growth opportunities in the territories, for businesses and, in particular, for young people: thus Andrea Maria Antonini, councilor for Economic Development opened this morning’s meeting at the regional headquarters for the tenth anniversary of the national Aerospace technological cluster “Journey between the districts: stop in the Marche”.

A tour among the regional technological districts to share the perspectives of aerospace, describing the activities carried out, so that local administrations, companies, SMEs, universities and all interested parties can make use of them as a contribution to their development. The four universities and a network of twenty companies differing in size and scope of activity, all with a high propensity for Hi-Tech, innovation and product quality, are associated with the Marche Aerospace Cluster. “Aerospace is a very interesting cluster included in the intelligent specialization strategy tables – added Antonini – which the Marche Region has adopted and which it intends to deepen to launch further paths of innovation and research capacity”. It is a virtuous integrated system between business, research and technological managerial training, it was highlighted during the morning by the speakers, including Cristina Leone, President of CTNA and Maurizio Giacomini, President of Cluster Exploore, which can lead the way for innovation technology, business organisation, the approach to the national and international economic system for the regional production system. Aerospace represents a cutting-edge sector transversal to economic development “with potential that does not only concern action on space as we are used to imagining” said Antonini, satellite systems can in fact be used for the growth of different entrepreneurial activities such as agri-food for monitoring soil and fields, optimizing the use of water, fertilizers, weather data, with a sustainable approach.

“This meeting with companies and universities active and collaborative with institutions is a truly important moment of in-depth analysis to give maximum impetus to the space cluster in all its innumerable potential” concluded the councilor. Francesca Faedi, Margherita Capriotti and Eleonora Tubaldi from the Universities of Leicester, San Diego State and Maryland participated. Connecting from Paris is the CEO of Thales Alenia Space Italia Massimo Claudio Comparini.
