On June 7th and 8th, 2022, the first meeting of scientists of Association of European Research Establishments in Aeronautics – EREA, took place at the Marriott hotel in Warsaw’s Okęcie. The meeting was held parallel to the EREA Board Session.
The meeting was aimed at increasing cooperation between engineers and initiating joint projects. The theme of the meeting was hydrogen propulsion and related technologies. The two-day conference allowed for the exchange of experiences and knowledge, as well as finding common fields for cooperation.
The opening speeches were delivered by professor Roman Domański (Łukasiewicz – ILOT) and Marcello Kivel Mazuy (CIRA). The presentations concerned the issues related to the use of hydrogen in aviation and were an overview of the achievements to date. Professor Domański also referred to the challenges and risks related to the subject of hydrogen propulsion.
The event was attended by 27 experts representing 11 organizations associated with EREA.
The result of EREA’s work is six projects for joint initiatives, of which Łukasiewicz – Institute of Aviation is involved in four. Topics of the projects are inter alia, cryogenic tanks, hydrogenic propulsion systems or research infrastructure development. All projects will undergo an evaluation process and will receive recommendations for further implementation.
The Łukasiewicz Research Network – Institute of Aviation is one of the most modern research facilities in Europe, with traditions dating back to 1926. The Institute closely cooperates with global tycoons of the aviation industry, such as: GE, Airbus, Pratt & Whitney, and institutions from the space industry, including the European Space Agency. Strategic research areas of the Institute are aviation, space and unmanned technologies. It also provides research and services for domestic and foreign industries in the field of materials, composite, additive, remote sensing, energy and oil&gas technologies.
The Łukasiewicz Research Network provides attractive, complete and competitive technological solutions. It offers a unique system of “challenging” to business, thanks to which a group of 4,500 scientists in no more than 15 working days accepts the business challenge and proposes the entrepreneur to develop an effective implementation solution. At the same time, it involves the highest competences of scientists in Poland and a scientific apparatus unique in Poland. What is most important – the entrepreneur does not bear any costs related to the development of an idea for research work. Łukasiewicz meets the expectations of business in a convenient way. The entrepreneur may decide to contact us not only through the form at https://lukasiewicz.gov.pl/biznes/ but also in more than 50 locations: the Łukasiewicz Institutes and their branches throughout Poland. They will receive the same – high quality – product or service everywhere. The Łukasiewicz potential is focused around such research areas as: health, intelligent mobility, digital transformation and sustainable economy and energy.
