EU: Prize for SESAR Young Scientist Award 2021
SJU Prize for SESAR Young Scientist Award 2021.
The Single European Sky Air Traffic Management Research and Development (“SESAR”) project aims to modernise the air traffic management (ATM) in Europe and represents the technological pillar of the Single European Sky (SES). It aims to provide the European Union with a high performance air traffic control infrastructure, which will enable the safe and environmentally friendly development of air transport.
The SESAR Young Scientist Award 2021 (YSA 2021) aims to recognise young scientists with high potential contributing to the scientific research in the field of air traffic management and aviation. In addition, the award also provides a mechanism for further personal development.
