The Aerospace Global Forum (AGF) has announced a strategic partnership with IT professional network CIONET, which will support for the global forum that aims to build broader ecosystems thinking to explore new perspectives, drive change and immediate action, accelerating transition to a net-zero through an AI fuelled economy.
CIONET is one of the largest memberships of corporate digital leaders across Europe, Latin America, US and Australia, with over 10,000 CIOs, CTOs and IT directors engaged with the network. Strengthening AGF’s connection to the global technology industry, CIONET is connecting ambitious digital leaders and businesses around the globe to collaborate and share insight.
Roger Camrass, research director, CIONET International, said: “CIONET International is delighted to be part of this year’s Aerospace Global Forum at the Farnborough International Airshow and to headline the session on technology-driven sustainability. This topic is rapidly becoming the top agenda item for our 10,000 digital leaders across Europe. As a digital community, we recognise the urgent need to drive down carbon emissions across our IT footprints and to assist business partners to do the same across their entire supply chains.”
CIONET will host the headline session ‘Ecosystem Thinking – Hyper-scaling for Change’ Session to explore broader ecosystems thinking and draw on insights and perspectives from other sectors to help drive insights within the aerospace and defence industries.
Gareth Rogers, CEO of Farnborough International, said: “We have been relentless in our approach to building AGF and curating the purpose, agenda and platform that will make an impact to aerospace and our wider eco-system. Our partnership with CIONET is a notable step for Farnborough, in our mission to enhance the Airshow experience, connect global leaders across multiple transformative sectors, and create opportunities to drive positive change. Leading the way in the digital space, CIONET play a vital role in the development of the steps we will take to steer discussion and establish measurable outcomes. I am thrilled to welcome CIONET on board for the inaugural AGF.”
Taking place in tandem with the Farnborough International Airshow, AGF will set the agenda for industry in the years ahead, discussing the new digital workforce and future leaders of the aerospace and defence industry, and preparing organisations for the new skills needed in an AI-fuelled world.
Topics at the AGF include global discussions and perspectives from the World Economic Forum, businesses transitioning to Net Zero, sustainability across the global defence sector, smart and sustainable manufacturing, innovating at speed within the industry to accelerate change and new skills needed in a new sustainable and AI fuelled world
