Emerging Potential of Aviation Education and Training

for continuous and sustainable contribution in Eastern and Western European aerospace and aviation programs, projects

The Strategic Research & Innovation Agenda (SRIA) has a dedicated chapter on education and workforce, which was developed by the ACARE Working Group #5 “Prioritising research testing capabilities and education”. It identified the adaptation of the curricula to the Aviation sector needs, as well as the attractiveness and harmonization of the curricula content, as essential enablers to enhance the quality and availability of the Aviation workforce.
Highly skilled aviation workforce is a key factor influencing the success of aviation education and training establishments in “playing top level European research league”. Highly skilled aviation workforce also plays an important role in continuous and sustainable contribution of aviation education and training establishments in Eastern and Western European aerospace and aviation research programs, projects.

Collaborations become more and more important due to fast developments cycles and time to market requests. Sustainable networking between R&D players and industry is a proven strategy to raise innovation potentials, create new products, processes and services. For these reasons, BEAWARE project - funded under FP7 Program aims to bridge Partners for Aerospace Research and Technological Partnership with a focus on East - West collaborations gathering SMEs, Large companies and Research organizations.
