The European Aeronautics Science Network (EASN) is the Association of the European Academia active in Aeronautics research. Its main goal is to support the development and dissemination of new knowledge, innovation and breakthrough technologies through fundamental research in Aeronautics. EASN has more than 130 registered active members including individuals, university labs, universities and other organizations, plus it connects to more than 10,000 academic staff, researchers and scientists throughout Europe. EASN has agreements with industrial and SME organizations for the dissemination of knowledge and research related information. Finally, it represents Academia in ACARE and other EU forums and committees. The strategic partnerships of EASN as well as the wide spread of its members allow EASN to disseminate Aeronautics related information to practically the whole Aeronautics community.
The EASN Association will be represented in PERSEUS by EASN Technology Innovation Services (EASN-TIS). The latter is contractually linked to EASN and is exclusively authorized to act on its behalf in the frame of research projects. In this context, EASN-TIS has participated and currently participates in a number of Coordination and Support Actions (CSAs) such as SUNJET, COOPERATEUS, HERMES, AeroUkraine, PromoAir, CATER, CAPPAROCIA etc. Further to that, it also has significant experience in a plethora of research projects in which it predominantly leads (or participates in) the dissemination and exploitation activities, e.g. SARISTU (Level 2 project), HAIC (Level 2 project), ENCOMB (Level 1 project), INMA (Level 1 project), IASS (Level 1 project), InLight (Level 1 project), QUICOM (Level 1 project), CORSAIR (Level 1 project) etc.
The role of EASN in the PERSEUS project will be to lead WP8, and in addition to participate actively in WP2, WP5 and WP7.
