The European Aeronautics Science Network (EASN) is the Association of the European Academia active in Aviation and Space research. The main objective of EASN is to support the development of new knowledge, innovation, and breakthrough technologies through fundamental research in Aviation & Space. The long-term goal of EASN is to develop an open, unique European platform in order to structure, support, and upgrade the research activities of European Universities and to facilitate them to respond to their key role within the European Aviation & Space Research Community.
EASN currently has more than 400 registered members, including individuals, universities, and other organizations, through which it can network with more than 10,000 academic staff, researchers, and scientists throughout Europe. Furthermore, EASN has agreements with industrial and SME groups for the dissemination of knowledge and research-related information.
The EASN Association will be represented in this proposal by EASN-Technology Innovation Services (EASN-TIS). The latter is contractually linked to EASN and is exclusively authorized to act on its behalf in research projects, including project management and administration.
In HERWINGT, EASN-TIS will lead the dissemination and communication activities of the project. The main objective is to diffuse the project itself and its outcomes, by spreading the knowledge incubated within the project to a wide audience from all sectors such as the Industry, SMEs, Academia, and research establishments, while at the same time not failing to reach the wider public throughout Europe.
