The European Aeronautics Science Network (EASN) is an open association networking academia in aviation and space research with the aim to:

  • Structure Europe-wide academia thematically and regionally,
  • Create conditions for facilitating academic upstream research at national, European and international levels,
  • Support academia to respond to its key role within the European aerospace research community in incubating new knowledge and breakthrough technologies and
  • Disseminate knowledge, new technologies and innovation.

Currently EASN counts ~300 members, affiliated to almost all significant universities active in the European aerospace ecosystem. They represent all European countries.
