The AIRVET Alliance

The AIRVET Alliance includes AIRVET project partners, associated partners and other organisations that have joined activities of the project during its implementation. One of the strategic objectives of the AIRVET Alliance is to foster a close, open, informal dialogue and sustained interactions and networking between  stakeholders in the aerospace sector. In this context, we try to explore all possible synergies with other projects and initiatives aimed at fostering this sectoral dialogue towards a true European collaboration for aerospace.

AIRVET consortium

The AIRVET consortium is composed of 10 partners from 6 countries, representing 3 types of actors of key importance to the AI sector and to the accomplishment of the objectives of the project: Bodies with aeronautic specific expertise; VET providers; Bodies involved in education and training systems.

During the development of the project, other organisations have collaborated with AIRVET, for example as associated partners. Although the project formally ended in October 2015, favourable  conditions have been created for the future of these collaborations between  AIRVET partners.


In order to strengthen the Alliance, the AIRVET consortium should stimulate the exchange between projects and initiatives in order to establish sustainable future collaborations and future joint efforts. This has been and will continue to be implemented in several ways including: the exchange of speakers, the organisation of joint workshops, dissemination in project newsletters, joint seminars and participation in project events presenting and releasing information about the AIRVET materials.

Below you will find some projects and initiatives with which AIRVET has established collaborations:

ashleyASHLEY project

ASHLEY (Avionics Systems Hosted on a distributed modular electronics Large scale dEmonstrator for multiple tYpe of aircraft) will consolidate and integrate the results of SCARLETT and several national collaborative research projects to achieve demonstration of the most advanced building blocks available today in a whole aircraft-level platform.

in2IN2SAI project

The IN2SAI project intends to increase the participation of female students in higher education studies in scientific fields (especially those relevant for aeronautics) and to contribute to their integration into the Aeronautic Industry (AI). Objectives:

–          Enhance collaboration among academia and industry, so that academia can better address the needs of industry and both can contribute to better gender balance by increasing the participation of female students/workers.

–          Identify existing reasons and possible causes for the low female interest in scientific studies and participation in the AI.

–          Increase the interest of female students/young women in scientific studies and AI careers by providing information on existing opportunities, presenting successful examples and promoting events where they can share opinions and experiences with stakeholders involved in those sectors.

–          Raise awareness of the opportunities for female participation in scientific studies and AI, through the organisation of several events and the release of promotional material.

The HiPAir Strategic Partnership focuses on the development of skills and materials for the adoption of High Performance Work Practices (HPWP). The HiPAir project is co-funded by the European Commission under the ERASMUS+ programme and addresses the need for better HR management skills in aviation SMEs, covering the latest developments in HPWP and best practices within the sector.

inn INNO66 project

The Erasmus + INNO66 project is very closely aligned to the AIRVET project and will utilise methodologies used in the creation of the multimedia training materials for AIRVET for modules defined in the EASA Part66 training scheme for licensing aircraft maintenance engineers.
