The SESAR JU is pleased to announce the launch of the Digital European Sky Awards.

The 2021 edition of the SESAR JU awards aims to celebrate successful SESAR 2020 projects and achievements in the following five categories:

  1. SESAR Exploratory Research Award
  2. SESAR Industrial Research Award
  3. SESAR Demonstration Award
  4. SESAR ATM Sustainability Award
  5. SESAR U-space Award

A distinguished panel of air traffic management (ATM) experts will evaluate the contributions. Shortlisted projects will progress to the next stage in the process whereby the wider ATM community and public will be able to vote for their favourite ATM research and innovation projects.

This is a huge opportunity for visibility around your work and achievements. We therefore encourage all successfully closed SESAR 2020 projects to apply and receive recognition for your contribution to our shared journey towards the Digital European Sky.

Deadline for applications: 7 May 2021

The results will be announced at a virtual awards ceremony on 17 June 2021.
