EASN Interest Groups (IGs)
EASN Interest Groups are aimed at enhancing closer cooperation between university institutes in research areas of specific scientific interest with regard to the European research programmes.
The general objectives of Interest Groups are:
- Identify the capabilities existing across Europe
- Facilitate communication between individuals and stimulate the transfer of know-how
- Provide information on research opportunities
- Promote awareness for scientific and technological aspects in aeronautics
With respect to the European research programmes IGs might lead to Networks of Excellence (NoEs) in order to achieve harmonization and integration of University driven research on the topics of interest.
As for active research, the EASN IGs have led to several succesful University driven projects in the frame of the FP6 and FP7 calls for proposals.
