Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Wednesday, 15 October 2008

Airbus is launching an international competition "Fly Your Ideas" for student teams worldwide to come up with innovative ideas to shape the future of aviation and help to enhance the sector's eco-efficiency. The objective: creating more value with less impact on the environment.

The competition is open to college and university students from around the world, studying a degree, Masters or PhD in any academic discipline, from engineering to marketing, business to science and philosophy to design. The proposals can look at a wide range of topics including new materials, products and/or processes as well as aircraft performance, manufacturing and organisational and operational performance.

A top prize of €30,000 is being offered to the team whose idea demonstrates the greatest potential for improvement. The teams will advance through different competitive and challenging rounds, concluding with a live final at the Le Bourget Airshow in June 2009.

"As an eco-efficient enterprise, Airbus provides leadership by encouraging and delivering responsible solutions. With our university competition, we want to include new views and ideas in the early stages of our long term technology work," explained Patrick Gavin, Airbus' Executive Vice President Engineering and patron of the Fly Your Ideas competition. "We are committed to developing new technologies to ensure that air transport continues to be an eco-efficient means of transport, delivering economic value while minimising its environmental impact."
