Workshop on Flying Test Beds for Novel Aircraft Configurations
18 September 2012, Brussels
For meeting the ambitious goals of Europe's Vision for Aviation 'Flightpath 2050' novel aircraft configurations and advanced technologies need to be investigated. This workshop will explore the potential of flying test beds for developing technologies particularly for novel configurations. It aims to assess the capabilities of flying test beds as necessary tools to design and validate innovative aircraft configurations complementary to computational methods, simulation and ground based experiments.
Small Aircraft Transport - Roadmap Conference ILA 2012
13 September 2012, Berlin, Germany
Inter-regional mobility using small aircraft could offer socio economic benefits and time saving for businesses. This research project explored how small aircraft operations can become part of the air transport system, studying - among other things - technological requirements and safety aspects.
This conference will present the SAT-Rdmp project results, including the findings on market potential, aircraft specifications, potential future research topics and the research roadmap.
SARTRE final workshop and platooning demonstration
11-12 September 2012, Borås, Sweden
SARTRE (Safe Road Trains for the Environment) aims to encourage a step change in personal transport usage through the development of safe environmental road trains, or 'platoons': a convoy of vehicles where a professional driver in a lead vehicle drives a line of other vehicles. All vehicles are totally detached and can leave the convoy at any time. Once in the platoon, drivers can relax and do other things while the platoon proceeds towards its long haul destination. This final workshop will include a demonstration of platooning with five vehicles on a test track, a simulator and other project results, as well as host stakeholder discussions.
International Conference on "Integrated Approaches for Volcanic Risk Management"
11-12 September 2012, Hohenheim University Stuttgart, Germany
Following the UN International Strategy for Disaster Reduction recommendations and starting from shared existing knowledge and practices, this conference aims at presenting innovative tools and integrated cost effective methodologies to mitigate risks from various hazards on active volcanoes (prevention, crisis management and recovering).
The focus is more particularly put on integrating tools. This concerns interdisciplinary integration between different domains (e.g. inputs of social approaches in risk mapping methodologies) but also integration between the three different phases of risk management (e.g. Information System designed to be used both for risk mapping and crisis management).
This conference serves as final workshop of the FP7 MIAVITA project.
