The European Aeronautics Science Network (EASN) is the Association of the European Academia active in Aeronautics research. The main objective of EASN is to support the development of new knowledge, innovation and breakthrough technologies through fundamental research in Aeronautics. 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 the European Aeronautics Universities and to facilitate them to respond to their key role within the European Aeronautical Research Community. It represents the European Academia in ACARE and other EU forums and committees. EASN currently has more than 320 registered active members, including individuals, university labs, 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 and organizations for the dissemination and exploitation of knowledge and research related information.
The EASN Association will be represented in UMA3 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.
