The European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) is launching a new initiative to engage with the next generation of aviation scientists from European academia, calling on them to share their research and ideas for the future development of aviation.

Selected students will be invited to present their papers at the first edition of the European_Academia@EASA conference that will take place in March 2023. 

The aim of the conference is to develop partnerships between the Agency and European Universities and academia, while advancing and disseminating knowledge in new and emerging fields relevant for aviation.

EASA is inviting PhD students from European universities and research entities to submit abstracts of their PhD thesis related to the following areas of interest that will be covered during the 2023 conference:

  • Artificial intelligence (AI) in aviation
  • Impact of climate change and extreme weather phenomena on the air transport system
  • Environmental sustainability (emissions, noise, air quality, other nuisance,..)
  • New approaches and methods for safety risk management

Abstracts will be reviewed by the EASA Scientific Committee, composed of leading members of European academia and institutions in aeronautical and related research. Students whose abstracts have been selected will be invited to the European_Academia@EASA conference 2023 and have the opportunity to present their work.
