What is Aer’Hauts-de-France?

In June 2019 at the Paris Air Show, Hauts-de-France announced the creation of a regional brand: Aer’Hauts-de-France. Now fully operational, the brand brings together a group of regional stakeholders:

  • manufacturers
  • research centres ( Onera),
  • R&D centres and innovation platforms ( Industri’Lab, CETIM, etc.)
  • institutions (CCI Hauts-de-France, Direccte Nord France Invest, Altytud, etc) 

Aer’Hauts-de-France: bringing the national aerospace strategy to the region

The new brand’s primary aim is to boost the rapidly developing regional aerospace industry. Note Airfoils and Rafaut’s recently launched operations and SFK’s latest investment in the region. In the same vein, Aer’Hauts-de France gives regional support to the directives proposed by its national counterpart GIFAS (the French aerospace industries association), while retaining the right to add other initiatives in relation to specific regional requirements. It’s a two-way mission that makes the brand the voice of its members nationwide. To assist manufacturers’ development, Aer’Hauts-de-France has set up a support programme covering 4 key areas depending on the maturity of each company:

  • employment and skills
  • industrial performance
  • innovation
  • globalisation
