Overview about the competition
We are pleased to announce the second edition of the Airbus Aviation Innovation Challenge Entaliq.
Entaliq was launched in September 2016 by Airbus, the world’s leading aircraft manufacturer in partnership with TAQNIA Aeronautics and Saudi Arabian Airlines. The initiative falls in line with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s ambitious ‘Vision 2030’ innovation strategy, promoting the sustainable future growth of the Kingdom’s aviation industry by cultivating and accelerating innovation in the Middle East’s aerospace sector.
As a leader in Science Technology Engingeering and Mathetmetics (STEM) innovation, Airbus has built a strong network of local partners in the industry that pride themselves on the promotion of technology and knowledge sharing. Airbus continues to pioneer more STEM-related partnerships designed to drive the future growth and sustainability of national and global standards in the aviation industry.
The inaugural 2016 cycle of Entaliq attracted more than 1,000 Saudi applicants, over 70 unique project idea submissions, and concluded with an awards ceremony that presented the opportunity for the top 20 participants to be recognized for their creative and innovative projects. Providing a platform of knowledge transfer and inspiration, Entaliq supports the development of innovators and entrepreneurs across various science and aviation technology disciplines, highlighting their achievements across the globe.
The winners of the Entaliq challenge have the potential to be coached by experts, mentored by aerospace industry veterans, and trained on how to develop realistic business plans. Presenting these plans to a judging panel of industry professionals provides young passionate Saudis with the possibility of incubating their projects and turning their ideas into reality.
