Innovation management

DFS has creative employees brimming with ideas. But how do we get these ideas out of their heads and turn them into concrete projects? How do you foster ideas from when they were first mentioned until they are actually implemented in the air traffic management system? How do we create a healthy balance between the necessary high requirement for safety on the one hand and the boost to innovation in air navigation services required by the increasing traffic on the other?

The aim of innovation management is to create innovations out of ideas. Innovation management acts as a catalyst within DFS under the auspices of the R&D department.

Innovation management is both an instrument for generating and evaluating ideas and a tool for interdisciplinary networking within the company.
