English The Blockchain technology can impact the aviation field massively. A modern aircraft consists of 2–3 million parts. Some of the aviation parts are also called “tracked items.” Not only their provenance, but the entire maintenance history of these parts need to be transparent. From inspecting those parts to prevent counterfeiting to maintaining the stocks in the warehouse, Blockchain can be of huge significance. Blockchain can help the aviation industry in following ways
• Single, traceable record of serial numbers for various parts
• Better and more accurate maintenance history that will create an efficient supply chain
• Increased trust between service providers, suppliers and operators- paving the way for the 3d printing devices
• Cheaper compliance, increasing airworthiness
• Improved supply chain transparency and efficiency Among all these benefits there are certain grey areas like whether a public blockchain is suitable from a legal point of view; whether the scalability issue will hamper the development in this industry; or how to bring various supplier under the same blockchain ecosystem?

To discuss various issues revolving around these topics we will have three expert speakers in the evening.

• Andrei Mituca (founder 3d Trust)
• Dr. Moritz Pettersen- (Senior Researcher at Kühne Logistics University)
• Bessem Ayari- (Innovation Manager at Altran Technologies)

Blockchain eröffnet vielversprechende Möglichkeiten für die Luftfahrbranche:

- Universelles, nachverfolgbares Verzeichnis von Seriennummern
- Bessere und akkuratere Protokollierung von Wartung und Instandhaltung
- Vertrauensgrundlage zwischen Dienstleistern, Lieferanten und Betreibern
- Kostengünstigere Compliance, bessere Einhaltung von Luftfahrstandards
- Katalysator für die Einführung von 3D-Druck-Technologie in der Luftfahrbranche
- Erhöhte Transparenz und Effizienz von Lieferketten

Bei allem Potenzial gilt es aber auch, mögliche Probleme und Herausforderungen der Technologie zu beachten: Rechtliche Grauzonen auf öffentlichen Blockchains, die ungeklärte Skalierbarkeit von Blockchains und die Inkompabilität unterschiedlicher Blockchain-Systeme.

Mit Hilfe unserer sachverständigen Referent*Innen werden wir uns einen Überblick über Blockchain in der Luftfahrbranche schaffen.

Die Liste der Referent*Innen wird in den folgenden Tagen aktualisiert.
