Airbus’s selection criteria of certified partners include companies with global presence, familiarity with Skywise technology, high-quality human resources, existing business with airlines, and existing business relationships with the European aircraft maker.
According to Airbus, the Skywise certified partners will benefit from dedicated training and certification to help aviation players develop more robust, richer applications within the open data platform. They will have access to its own working space on Skywise and to additional platform features.

“The Industrial Revolution 4.0 of the aviation sector has been realized by the global leading aircraft manufacturer Airbus through its Skywise platform. FPT Software is proud to stand alongside IBM, Accenture, Capgemini, and Sopra Steria to shape the future of aviation. Our software engineers are working round the clock to develop and deploy deploy Skywise applications for airliners around the world applications", FPT Software Chairman Hoang Nam Tien affirmed.

Over the past two years, the company has helped Airbus to gather, standardize, and integrate data of more than 30 airliners to the Skywise platform. According to Mr. Mathew Evans, Airbus Director of Global Skywise Project, the two companies have collaborated comprehensively and extensively. “Skywise is a global aviation industry project”, he said. “We are in this together not only for the short term but also set for a long future ahead”.

Gilead Announces Latest Data in Ongoing HIV Cure Research Program23.7.2019 20:00:00 CEST | Press release
Gilead Sciences, Inc. (NASDAQ: GILD) today presented results from two studies of investigational toll-like receptor 7 (TLR7) agonists as part of an HIV cure research program. The Phase 1 and preclinical study results demonstrate that the TLR7 agonists vesatolimod (GS-9620) and GS-986 can induce immune activation and follow earlier preclinical research suggesting that TLR7 agonists can potentially lead to viral remission, as part of combination regimens. The HIV viral reservoir is present even in virologically suppressed individuals and its elimination is regarded as a main obstacle to achieving a cure. The data were presented at the 10th International AIDS Society Conference on HIV Science (IAS 2019) being held in Mexico City. “While treatments have improved dramatically, people living with HIV still face a lifetime of therapy and potential complications. That reality drives our ongoing pursuit of a cure for HIV,” said Diana Brainard, MD, Senior Vice President, HIV and Emerging Viruses
