Welcome to the 9th EASN International Conference
The EASN Association, the University of Patras and the National Technical University of Athens are glad to announce the 9th EASN International Conference on “Innovation in Aviation & Space” which will take place in Athens, Greece from the 3rd until the 6th of September, 2019.
The aim of this gathering is dual. To act as a forum where innovative ideas, breakthrough concepts and disruptive technologies are presented, while in parallel be the place for disseminating the knowledge and results achieved in the frame of research projects of the aviation and space field. The previous EASN International Conference, held in Warsaw, Poland in September 2017 has been attended by more than 300 participants from various disciplines and a similar attendance is expected also for the 2019’s event.
Like its predecessors, the 9th EASN International Conference will include a number of Plenary Talks by distinguished personalities of the European Aviation and Space sectors from the academia, industry, research community and policy makers. It will also include Thematic Sessions, along with Technical Workshops where evolving ideas, technologies, products, services and processes will be discussed. The identification of possible synergies and interactions with other sectors (e.g. automotive) will be a key aspect of the event.
Furthermore, the conference is expected to be a major European Dissemination and Exploitation event of Aviation & Space related research. The majority of the currently running research projects will exploit the 3-days technical program to present their activities and achieved goals, discuss on current trends and future needs of the aviation & space related research and try to identify possible synergies with each other. Additionally, a number of policy development projects will also find the floor to present the strategic priorities of the European aviation sector with regard to the challenges of FlightPath2050 and the expected “Horizon Europe” Framework Programme.
Last but not least, the 9th EASN International Conference will be accompanied by a small exhibition where the overview of the aviation & space ecosystem in Greece will be presented.
In this frame, you are cordially invited to join us and be part of this year’s conversation of the European Aviation & Space community!
