Bridging East West for Aerospace REsearch (BEWARE)
Bridging East West for Aerospace REsearch
Start date: Oct 1, 2013,
End date: Sep 30, 2015
The BEWARE project has set a mission to increase the participation of the aeronautical organisations in Framework Programme which are not yet involved at the level of the size of their respective aeronautics sector. The general objective of the BEWARE project is to support potential coordinators and potential partners in future R&D projects in the field of Aeronautics and Air Transport of Horizon 2020 in identifying innovation opportunities and building international teams and consortiums.In order to achieve this objective and to create significant impact, the BEWARE project maps aeronautical competences in at least ten aerospace regions in Europe; organizes three workshops and three plant and factory tours to meet top-level contractors in European aerospace industry, creates an Aerospace Springboard in Eastern European countries; structures at least one innovation chains based on Key Enabling Technologies and identifies at least five potential project consortia in aeronautics through an extension of the European Aerospace Cluster Partnership.The BEWARE consortium connects leading aerospace clusters and support organisations in Western Europe (France, Germany, United Kingdom, Spain and Italy) with quickly evolving aerospace clusters and strongholds in Eastern Europe (Poland, Romania, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Baltic States). Thus, the BEWARE project creates the necessary conditions for utilizing the existing and emerging potential in the field of Aeronautics and Air Transport for a continuous and sustainable contribution in European aerospace programmes and projects.To achieve maximum results and extend the duration of expected impacts, the BEWARE project strives towards an ideal state, where an evolvement of new partnerships between aerospace actors from Eastern and Western European countries will not depend on additional EU financing as a main prerequisite to start their collaborative projects in the field of Aeronautics and Air Transport.
