Postponed: SAFE 360˚, the Safety in Aviation Forum for Europe - 2020

NOTE: date to be confirmed

Date and Time

Postponed until 4th Quarter of 2020 – exact date to be announced.


In view of the COVID-19 pandemic, the SAFE 360° conference will be postponed until the 4th Quarter (Q4) of 2020. The new date for the conference will be announced in the coming weeks, at a time when it has become easier to plan such an event.

In direct response to this crisis, the SAFE 360° (2020) agenda will be adjusted to focus on the impact of COVID-19 on the aviation industry from a safety perspective. Discussions will range from the impact of reduced operations to the management of a safe return to operations. The precise agenda will be tailored to address the emerging industry needs as we all learn more about the impact of the pandemic. 

We thank everyone for the strong interest in the conference, which was almost booked to capacity in February 2020. For participants who had already registered for the April dates, EASA will refund the conference fee in full. Registration for the postponed conference will be opened when the new date and agenda has been announced. All participants who were registered for the April conference will be guaranteed a seat at the postponed conference, provided they re-register in the announced timeframe.

Description of the event

SAFE 360˚ is an innovative conference which strives to break down silos by examining key safety issues through a cross-domain perspective in an interactive environment. The conference includes the complete spectrum of aviation stakeholders drawn from up and down the technical and management chain.

The conference abides by the Chatham House Rule, which allows its participants to talk freely without attribution of their contribution. Attendees are asked not to identify and take information out of the conference without the source’s permission.

What can we expect in SAFE 360˚ (2020)?

Day 1 – Keynote Panel: Safety Culture and Data4Safety: Unveiling First Results

Day 2 – 360˚ Panels and 360° Review of Flight Data Monitoring (FDM)

Day 3 – 360˚ Workshops and Breakout Sessions
