SESAR Young Scientist Award 2018 puts promising research in the spotlight

Dec. 11, 2018

Against the background of the SESAR Innovation Days 2018, the SESAR Joint Undertaking hosted the 2018 SESAR Young Scientist Award (YSA 2018) Ceremony.

The YSA 2018 aimed 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 and visibility.

This year, the SJU received approximately 20 applications from across Europe, including Spain, Italy, Germany, France, Slovenia, Ireland, Serbia, UK and Sweden.

The jury was composed of representatives from our scientific Committee, Patrizia Marti and Rita Markovits and was chaired by the chairperson of the SJU Scientific Committee Peter Hecker. The results were as follows:
