In the last decade Slovakia has acquired a branding of the automotive stronghold - producing the most cars per capita in the World. However, with the ever-changing trends of new technological advancements, inventions and innovations Slovakia cannot solely rely on this sector. Being well-aware of these trends and having a dense automotive supplier network, Slovakia represents a great potential for industries of the Future. Turning our eyes from the ground towards the sky, the Slovak industrial future lies also within the aerospace sector. Through this session let us venture together with SARIO and R&D Composite towards the Sky and the Future.
