Greener Aeronautics Symposium

AeronauticsThe University of Glasgow is hosting the 'Greener Aeronautics Symposium' on the 3rd and 4th November 2014.

The symposium will bring together stakeholders from the UK and EU aeronautics industry, academia, and organizations to promote the establishment of knowledge and technical networks.

It will also strengthen cooperation and exchanges on the future trends in the main green technologies for reducing the environmental impact of aviation:

  • aircraft flight physics for emissions and noise reduction
  • propulsion, green materials and smart structures
  • high performance computing tools and numerical methods
  • air traffic operations and management.

This will be a unique opportunity to communicate, share and debate innovative concepts and technical solutions in the aeronautics domain with the aim of increasing the global competitiveness of the aeronautics industry and its supply chain.

The final programme will contain plenary lectures, keynote presentations and interactive workshops in the relevant AGT areas by leading figures and international experts from industry, government and academia, and one-to-one meetings with academics and knowledge exchange & business development professionals.

The symposium will provide an excellent opportunity to support innovation and new business prospects.

In addition to the main lectures, presentations and discussions, poster sessions will provide an insight into the aerospace sciences research activities already underway at the University of Glasgow.

The Symposium will be held in the University of Glasgow’s Senate Room.
