EREA Young Researchers Event at AIT


The EREA (Association of European Research Establishments in Aeronautics) is considered the largest and most renowned association of European research institutes in the field of aeronautics. As one of 15 members, the AIT represents the Austrian position in the field of aeronautics research. Experts from the Center for Low-Emission Transport, the Center for Vision, Automation & Control and the Center for Digital Safety & Security are represented in the EREA committees.


Recently, the AIT invited to the EREA Young Researchers Event in Vienna. On 11 and 12 October 2022, 30 young scientists from eleven different research institutes from all over Europe visited the AIT Headquarters in Vienna-Floridsdorf. Under the title "Preparing successful Horizon Europe proposals", the participants benefited from an online training session by Seán McCarthy (Hyperion) on the first day, who provided tips and tricks for the perfect proposal. On the second day, they learned from Michele De Gennaro (AIT) what is important when evaluating an EU proposal, and were then able to try their hand at evaluating a real project as evaluators.

The programme was completed by laboratory tours at the AIT (including Battery Lab and Drive Lab) and a visit to the RTA Climate-Wind-Channel. A social dinner was also not to be missed to make contacts and network with other organisations. Thanks to Elisabeth Dörr and all colleagues involved in the preparation!
