    Mandates and operational incentives: the impact of changing mandates versus the last mover advantage. How to handle this as industry?
A lot of mandates and operational incentives have been issued in the last decade and many more are to follow. In these cases there is often a disadvantage for first movers. For the service providers this implies that there is a large pressure just before a deadline to help the airline industry to comply. How can we as a collective better level load and incentivize early adopters?
    Increasing dominance of Aircraft OEMs in the modification marketplace. How to deal with this?
Aircraft OEMs and System OEMs are becoming more and more protective of the aftermarket of their products. Different strategies to do so are adopted. Strategies range from warning aircraft operators for lack of quality and sustainable support of STCs, and others are claiming IP infringements to third party service providers. What is actually happening, and what can we as a collective do to counter this increasing power play?
    What role can STC companies and DOA’s play in the modification industry?
Why do aircraft operators choose an STC over an SB, or when does an airline decide to do the engineering work themselves? How does the decision-making take place and what role or input do aircraft operators desire from the DOA’s and STC companies in the process?
