AircraftFire Final Workshop on Fire risks assessment and increase of passenger survivability
9-10 September 2014, Toulouse, France
This final AircraftFire workshop brings together interested people from science (researchers from academia and research centres), from industry (engineers, aircraft designers, parts manufacturers) and professionals from or related to public services, who are working and involved in the field of Fire Safety in aeronautics.
In the past 20 years, the fire threat in aeronautics has been drastically reduced. But in new generation aircrafts the massive use of flammable composites, substituting metallic structural elements, changes the understanding of fire risk, and can influences the fire safety approach for passenger and crew safety and survivability during fire incidents or accidents.
2nd HIKARI Open Workshop
24-25 September 2014, Brussels
The Consortium of the HIKARI project is organizing the 2nd HIKARI Open Workshop on the topic of High Speed Transport (HST). The Workshop will be kindly hosted at the premises of the European Commission.
HIKARI, or “light” in Japanese, a project funded by the EC, the METI (Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry) and other concerned Japanese authorities, aims at pursuing and bringing one step further cooperation between Europe and Japan in the field of high speed aviation.
4th EASN Association International Workshop on Flight Physics and Aircraft Design
27-29 October 2014, Aachen, Germany
The European Aeronautics Science Network (EASN) is delighted to announce that the 4th out of a series of annual specialized Workshops, this time in the fields of Flight Physics and Aircraft Design, will be held on October 27-29, 2014 in Aachen, Germany on the premises of RWTH Aachen University.
The Workshop will be co-chaired by Prof. Eike Stumpf and Prof. Wolfgang Schröder. In the frame of EASN Association’s knowledge and innovation dissemination activities, this three-day event primarily aims to offer its participants a forum to meet and present among relative audience, the latest advancements in the areas of Flight Physics and Aircraft Design, together with novel and innovative ideas for future research. The 4th EASN Workshop on Flight Physics and Aircraft Design is expected to be, like its predecessors, a major dissemination event for running research projects.
Standards: Your Innovation Bridge
30 October 2014, Brussels
Standardization is an important tool to ensure market access of research and innovation results, under Horizon2020. This conference will engage with leading innovators and policy makers to discuss the role standards play in supporting innovation.

TIPS workshop “From research to market - key factors on innovation”
30 July 2014, Rome, Italy
The aim of the workshop is to present the TIPS findings on the exploitation approaches of EU-funded project and discuss the process “from research to innovation”. A number of case studies, namely recently completed EU-funded projects whose results have been exploited or their exploitation has been initiated, will also be highlighted.
Introduction to Aircraft Aeroelasticity and Loads - 5 Day Course
14-18 July 2014, Bristol (UK)
The course is being run as part of the EU funded ALPES (Aircraft Loads Prediction using Enhanced Simulation) Marie-Curie Initial Training Network.
- To introduce the main concepts of Aeroelasticity and Loads, and the multi-disciplinary methods needed for their study
- To provide an understanding of the main principles of Aeroelasticity and Loads analysis by:
- using simple mathematical models to illustrate basic theoretical concepts,
- showing the maths – but not explaining all of the detail and derivations, instead focusing on the connection with the physics introducing relevant terminology and methods, and
- explaining the analysis, testing and certification processes used by the aerospace industry
- To include examples on some of the key topics.
AircraftFire Project Colloquium on the flammability threat of composites on aeronautical fire safety
8-10 July 2014, Brussels
A two and half days Colloquium focused on: - Fundamentals and state of the art in fire safety in aeronautics - New issues for fire safety in aeronautics - AircraftFire and beyond: Discussion panel on follow-up activities for fire safety in aviation.
This colloquium brings together interested people from science (students and researchers from academia and research centres), from industry (engineers, aircraftdesigners, parts manufacturers,...) and professionals from or related to public services, who are working in the field of fire safety in aeronautics.
The Context: For 20 years, the fire threat in aeronautics has been drastically reduced. But in new generation aircrafts the massive use of flammable composites, substituting metallic structural elements, changes the understanding of fire risk, and influences the fire safety approach for passenger and crew safety and survivability during fire incidents. As recent contribution the FP7 project AircraftFire (AcF) is aimed at the characterisation of the flammability and burning properties of aeronautical composites for fuselage, wings, structures, fuel tanks, cabin materials and their influences on the mechanical behaviour and at the investigation of the effects on inflight fire growth in the cabin and on passenger evacuation during post-crash fire.
JTI launch event
9 July 2014, Brussels
Public-private partnerships set up under the EU's new research and innovation programme, Horizon 2020, will launch their first calls on 9 July 2014 in Brussels. The partnerships work in strategic areas such as medicines, fuel cells, air and rail transport or electronics. They represent an essential investment into Europe's economy and in a better quality of life.
They will launch calls for projects and partners at a stakeholder event in Brussels, which will be attended by the President of the European Commission José Manuel Barroso along with the Commissioner for Research, Innovation and Science Máire Geoghegan-Quinn as well as Commission Vice-Presidents Siim Kallas, responsible for mobility and transport, and Neelie Kroes, responsible for the digital agenda.
