Centre of Excellence
Research and innovation programme
When we launched Heathrow 2.0, our ambitious plan for sustainable growth, we knew that one of the biggest tasks would be to keep pace with the rapidly evolving landscape of ideas, technologies and innovation. We also recognised that we would need to continuously harness innovation in the field of sustainability to help us deliver the huge positive impact that we are aiming to make.
Our research and innovation programme, within The Centre of Excellence, will help us produce a pipeline of ideas and transformative interventions which can help create a globally connected community and a thriving modern economy, sustainably.
Key areas we see the Centre of Excellence exploring…
Our research and innovation programme in sustainability is in its infancy, but below are the types of issues we want to explore.
About Heathrow as a sustainability testbed for research and innovation
Central to our role in addressing airport and aviation sustainability challenges is our intention to offer Heathrow as a testbed for research and innovation demonstration projects, pilots and applied research. This will begin with the first winner of our innovation prize.
