EUROAVIA Fly-In Technion
The 5-day Fly-In Technion event is an event during which 15 European students, members of the EUROAVIA Association, accompanied by a group of Technion students, visit the Aerospace Engineering Department. The students will visit the laboratories and facilities of the Technion and the Aerospace Engineering department. They will travel around Israel, visit companies, facilities and sites that are a part of Israel’s Aerospace industry and history.
EUROAVIA is the European Association of Aerospace Students, representing the interests of over 2000 students from 38 universities in 19 European countries. Established in 1959, EUROAVIA wants to be a bridge between companies, universities and students. Its goals are:
- To promote cooperation in the aerospace field by providing opportunities for our members to meet, exchange and learn on all levels.
- To internationally represent European aerospace students.
- To acquaint student members with their future working environment stimulating contacts with the industry.
International events are the true core of EUROAVIA, the moment when the EUROAVIA spirit gets instilled in every participant and, for those few days, the dream of our founding fathers becomes extremely clear. There are many types of international event, each focusing on developing specific aspects, part of the EUROAVIA goals.
All international events are organized by one of our Affiliated Societies.
Below you can find a list of some of EUROAVIA events:
- Congress Meetings
The Congress is EUROAVIA’s legislative body. Two meetings are held every year: the EMEAC (Electoral Meeting of the EUROAVIA Congress) and the AMEAC (Annual Meeting of the EUROAVIA Congress). Representatives from all Affiliated Societies gather together to discuss and decide about EUROAVIA current and future policies, about the status of the Association and the steps to take in the near and far future.
- Cultural Exchanges
Cultural exchanges are non-technical events usually organized between two Affiliated Societies. This kind of events focus more on the cultural and recreational aspects, promoting the cultural awareness and the sharing of experiences among the participants.
Fly-In are non-technical events during which the hosting Affiliated Society shows and promote the aerospace culture of its area. Typical activities during a fly-in are visits to aerospace companies, tours around the faculty and university of the hosting city, sightseeing.
Symposia are technical events that, through lectures, workshops, visits to laboratories and companies, aim at developing one specific topic. Participants are given the unique chance to improve their knowledge and expertise of the topic the symposium focuses on.
EUROAVIA is both a non-political and non-profit association, it is managed exclusively by volunteering students.
Every Affiliated society is required to host an international event and ours is doing so currently.
