EASN Conference Highlights

  • 12th EASN Conference Welcome Letter

    It is a pleasure and an honour to be able to welcome you to Barcelona and more specifically at the premises of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC, Barcelona-tech). After two years of pandemic, in which we had to organize the EASN International Conference virtually, it is really a satisfaction to meet you again and to be able to share these three days of Conference with all of you.

    The UPC, as a Technical University, is very interested in promoting academic and research activities, and this EASN event is a proof of it. The two aeronautical engineering schools, located on the Terrassa and Castelldefels campuses, as well as the Aeronautics Division of the physics department, and the research groups in the university, especially the ICARUS group (RPAS and Air Operations research), have put a lot of interest and effort into organizing this event. In reference to aeronautical engineering, the UPC is the second Spanish university, according to the QS ranking, but despite not being the first one, the activity and motivation are there, and we hope that the realization of the 12th EASN International Conference will contribute to its advancement.

    The organization of the conference in Barcelona is also a great opportunity for the EASN Association to promote its activities in Spain. In this sense and in my role as the National Contact Point (NCP) of the EASN Association in Spain, I hope that this year's EASN gathering will boost the visibility and acknowledgement of the Association.

    If today we are able to enjoy an in-person conference, it is due to EASN's endeavours, a fact that deserves recognition. Likewise, we must also recognize the effort of our colleagues from the University of Salerno, who were directly negatively affected because of the obstacles introduces by the pandemic during the organization of the two previous editions.

    I wish you all a pleasant and rewarding visit to the UPC and to Barcelona. Enjoy the 12th EASN International Conference.

    With our warmest regards,

    Dr. Jordi Pons i Prats

  • EureComp Logo

    The EuReComp project – “European recycling and circularity in large composite components” was launched on April 1, 2022, marked by the Consortium’s kick-off meeting. Funded by the European Commission Horizon Europe Programme and part of the call for a “Digitised, Resource-Efficient and Resilient Industry 2021”, EuReComp will run for 48 months.

    The cumulating composite wastes are more prominent than the needed new composites. The aircraft and wind energy sectors contribute to a major share of this. Across all industries about 60% of waste fibre reinforced composites is landfilled, causing severe societal and environmental issues. EU’s Circular Economy plan seeks to reduce the landfill down to 10% by increasing the rate of recycling.  As landfilling is highly discouraged in wind and transport sectors, relevant stakeholders seek to replace it with more advanced technologies and end-of-life options, which promote the recycling of carbon fibres. EuReComp research project has a strong focus on circularity, and set out to provide sustainable methods towards recycling and reuse of composite materials, coming from components used in various industries, such as aeronautics and wind energy. The main pathways that EuReComp proposes to achieve circularity will include:

    • repairing, repurposing and redesigning parts from end-of-life large scale products and
    • recycling and reclamation of the materials used in such parts; thus, accomplishing reduction of waste and transformation to high-added value products.

    EuReComp is coordinated by the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) bringing together a balanced consortium of 20 partners (INEGI, Technische Universitaet Dresden, Elbe Flugzeugwerke GMBH, B&T Composites, IRES, Leipzig University of Applied Sciences, Kunststoff-Zentrum Leipzig, Dallara Automobili SPA, Silesian University of Technology, ITAINNOVA, Politecnico di Torino, AIMEN, University of Patras, BIOG3D, EASN-TIS, STRATAGEM ENERGY LTD., APM, FRAUNHOFER, CIRCULARISE) representatives of academia, research institutes and SMEs, providing the needed expertise to ensure the achievement, exploitation and deployment of the project’s results.

    Currently having completed its first semester, the EuReComp consortium has a) accomplished a milestone regarding the business cases defined based on R6 strategy, b) developed project’s visual identity, communication toolkit & public website, and c) developed the first issues of the: 

    • Communication, Dissemination, Exploitation, Business plan, along with the
    • Data Management plan
    • Risk Management Plan and Quality Assurance Plan
