Young Researcher Competition


Mankind had a fascination for flying since ancient times, and it's been roughly a bit more than 100 years since the Wright brothers designed and went #airborne on the first aircraft in 1903.
Nonetheless, since its beginnings, #aviation has developed so quickly from the Wright Brothers' model to the large wide-bodied A380. And now, it's reaching even more dizzier heights, with concepts such as hydrogen-fueled aircraft and commercial space tourism.
#EUfunded TRA VISIONS has announced the TRA VISIONS 2022 Young Researcher Competition and is calling on university students of any level (BSc, MSc and PhD alike) to participate in the biggest #EU competition for students in #Transport.
The TRA VISIONS 2022 Young Researcher Competition is divided in 5 modes, each for mode of transport. As one of the Competition's modes, #Airborne is dedicated to concept related to aircraft design and engineering, #digitalisation and automation, #drones#UTM and #ATM, among others.

Let's take a look at the Airborne winning projects from the 2020 Edition:
