European aeronautics science network - phase ii

Objective

In the present EASN-II project, the emphasis will be given to face the fragmentation, effort multiplication and high scatter in academia research activities by further developing the established thematic and regional network structures of the European Aeronautics Universities in terms of representativity and performance and upgrading them into incubator mechanisms for developing new knowledge, innovative concepts and breakthrough technologies in aeronautics.

To achieve a successful exploitation of these mechanisms existing links with the industry will be used and further strengthened. The network structures will be also exploited to facilitate and foster the mobility of researchers in Europe. Specific attention will be paid to the integration of the Universities of the New Member States and regions which are less developed in aeronautics as well as to the Co-operation with countries outside the European Union.

The above-mentioned EASN-II structures will provide the starting point for the establishment of a permanent and self-funded University association for aeronautical research. EASN-II will be further established as a collective voice for the European Universities in research related issues.

The existence of a collective University voice and representation in aeronautics research related issues will appreciably facilitate the links between the European Universities and the European Commission, the European Parliament and the other Stakeholders in Aeronautics, i.e. the Industrial, SMEs and Research Establish mentâ's Associations and also support realizing ACAREâ's goals.

EASN-II will provide the missing infrastructure for making the contribution of the European Aeronautics Universities to the realization of the European Research Area efficient and manageable.
