AEROSPACE Education 2020
The AEROSPACE Education 2020 symposium aims to implement technological aerospace innovations within education in a faster sense, in such a way that education can support the continuous developments in technology, logistics, operations and facilities. This initiative is a joint effort of four Dutch aerospace educational organizations.
Hogeschool INHolland Delft, Hogeschool van Amsterdam, Delft University of Technology and the ROC of Amsterdam are of the opinion that students should be better prepared in their future field of activity. A clear vision on the aerospace industry is lacking in the Netherlands and Europe, making an effective adaptability of education on the developments within the different segments difficult. This cooperation is a signal to the industry in taking a joint responsibility when it comes to educating students to future professionals. Kick-off of this cooperation is the AEROSPACE Education 2020 symposium which will take place at the 16th of April 2010 at the Hogeschool van Amsterdam.
Speakers include: Michel Peters, general director of the Dutch National Aerospace Laboratory and Prof. dr. Alberto Bazzan, head of New Business Development of IATA will present their vision. They will discuss the themes “Innovation and Aerospace education” and “The importance of well educated personnel within a changing airline environment”.
