The European Aeronautics Science Network (EASN Association) is the Association of the European Academia active in Aeronautics research. Its main goal is to support the development and dissemination of new knowledge, innovation and breakthrough technologies through fundamental research in Aeronautics. It represents the Academia in ACARE and other EU forums and committees. EASN has about 280 registered active members including individuals, university labs, universities and other organizations, through which it connects to more than 10,000 academic staff, researchers and scientists throughout Europe. Furthermore, EASN has agreements with industrial and SME networks and organizations for the dissemination and exploitation of knowledge and research related information.
The EASN Association will be represented in this project by EASN Technology Innovation Services (EASN-TIS). The latter is contractually linked to EASN and is exclusively authorized to act on its behalf in the frame of research projects, including project management and administration. Explicitly, the main services offered by EASN-TIS involve setting up, executing and monitoring the projects’ dissemination, communication and networking activities ensuring the wide and effective spread of their achievements to the relevant target audiences, while at the same time safeguarding the IP rights of the consortium. Other services offered by EASN-TIS include project management, consortium creation, proposal preparation and development of specialized studies related to the formulation of EU policies.
Role in the project
In order to foster exploitation in the civil aviation domain, EASN-TIS will collect input on the needs and requirements of the aeronautics industry that might be covered by the group of alloys developed. Also, the partners of the project will be consulted by expert industrial groups (e.g. IMG4) from whom relative input will be required either through expert interviews or small workshops.
WP6 - EASN-TIS will develop and execute an appropriate and effective dissemination and communication strategy focused on the aeronautics industry which will be realized with the active involvement of all partners
