On behalf of the EASN Association and the University of Salerno we would like to cordially thank all the participants of the 13th EASN International Conference on Innovation in Aviation & Space for Opening New Horizons.
Special thanks are due to the prestigious Keynote Speakers, Session Chairs, Authors and Presenters, the International Scientific Committee, and the Organizing Committee for making this event one more successful gathering of the European Aviation & Space Community!!!
The event included 8 Keynote Speeches, more than 380 technical presentations and feedback slots distributed in 65 sessions and workshops.
Moreover, 65 Aviation & Space Projects disseminated their latest research results as well as the future trends in the respective technological fields. In total, 410 participants from 39 countries attended the 13th EASN International Conference
Like its predecessors, the conference has proved to be a major European Dissemination event for research in Aviation & Space, providing a forum for EU funded project s activities, where innovative ideas, breakthrough concepts, and disruptive technologies are presented and discussed with the aim to establish new research partnerships and possible synergies. In addition, a number of European policy development projects also found the floor to present future strategic priorities.
The Keynote Speeches given by distinguished personalities of the European Aviation& Space sector have been among the highlights of the event. The conference delegates were updated on the future Industrial trends and the European priorities with respect to the medium and long-term goals. More specifically:
Furthermore, significant conference highlights were:
The 5 workshops organized with the support of CINEA - European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency with the participation of 25 running aviation-related projects on:
The stimulating discussions and productive exchanges between the projects and the audience proved once again of the bottom-up approach of the collaborative research, the strong interaction between projects through clusters and the need of such projects to feed higher TRL projects closer to the market.
The 6 Clean Sky 2 and Clean Aviation showcases presenting the achievements made so far and the ambitious concepts and roadmaps in achieving the mid- and long-term targets set in the programme. In particular, the dedicated sessions included:
On the fourth day of the event, conference attendees had the chance to visit the Aerospace Research Center (CIRA) and gain valuable insights into the Italian research ecosystem.
The Proceedings of the 13th EASN International Conference will be published by IOP Publishing Ltd in the respective open-access volume by the Journal of Physics: Conference Series. Proceedings are an important part of the scientific record, documenting and preserving work presented at the EASN Conferences throughout the years.
Further to the proceedings, selected full papers will be published in three international journals, following peer review: Aerospace - Open Access Journal, Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology (AEAT) and Journal of Composite Science - MDPI.
