TULIPS launch event: looking back

How can we drastically reduce emissions at airports before 2050 and make aviation more sustainable? That’s the challenge the 29 partners of the TULIPS consortium are tackling. On 27 October 2022 we presented our plans for 17 demonstrator projects to drive sustainability at airports and in aviation.

Meet & greet TULIPS partners 26 and 27 October 

The TULIPS launch event on 27 October brought many TULIPS partners and supporters to Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. So we efficiently combined the launch event with meetings, break out sessions and also an airside tour for TULIPS participants to get to know the airport where the demonstrator projects will take place.  

The pictures give an impression of two fruitful and inspiring days. Thanks to all TULIPS partners for being there!
