EASN-Technology Innovation Services (EASN-TIS) is a Belgium based SME strongly involved in aeronautics and air transport related research projects. The establishment of EASN-TIS was supported by the EASN Association in order to create a permanent contact of the Association and act on its behalf in the framework of research projects. The contractual connection of the EASN Association and EASN-TIS provides a steady but at the same time flexible counterpart with access to the EASN database and contacts.
EASN-TIS strongly supports the EASN Association during the creation of successful research consortia by identifying and bringing together the most relevant and appropriate partners for research activities of common interest. The access to the membership database of the EASN Association as well as the contacts to the respective associations of the Industry and Research Establishments, enables the identification of the most relevant partner for your research activities with national and international presence from the Academia communities, Industry and major Research organizations. The EASN database also enables the identification of partners based on their geographic location and areas of expertise. The unique connection with the EASN Association enables EASN-TIS to support in the preparation of successful collaborative research projects as well as partnerships in student exchange programs.
EASN-TIS supports its partners to move from an upstream idea to the implementation of a competitive and unique research project, through the identification of a suitable funding source and the development of a research proposal. The combination of extensive expertise and flexibility across different technological areas within the aeronautics and transport research field enables EASN-TIS to provide unique skills and competences to the consortia in which participates.
In addition, the competences of EASN-TIS include an international presence and organizational profile, a proven track record and in depth expertise in management and dissemination processes. The identification and application of the most effective methodological approach for the dissemination and exploitation of the innovative results from Research and Technological Development projects is one of our most important objectives.
Our team covers a wide field of competences, skills, knowledge and technologies for the provision of qualitative services such as aeronautical engineering, policy research, Information and Communication Technologies, marketing and management science. Our people bring together a unique mixture of technical, scientific and industrial qualifications, strong coordination and management skills, strong analytical and quantitative skills, excellent planning and time-management skills, extensive understanding of international partnerships, experience in proposal writing, in depth knowledge of large European funded programmes and extensive expertise in the development and application of dissemination and exploitation plans for Research and Technological Development results. The diverse and international backgrounds of our team combined with the opportunities and incentives offered by EASN-TIS to learn, develop and grow, both in establishing new job-specific hard skills, as well as softer skills creates an atmosphere of innovation that fosters teamwork.
EASN-TIS actively participates in research projects, mostly aiming to support the dissemination and exploitation activities of aeronautics and air transport related projects, co-financed by the European Commission. We also support the management activities by providing guidelines and best practices based on our experience in research projects.
In the frame of numerous collaborative projects, EASN-TIS has worked with most of the European outstanding research institutes, universities, aircraft manufacturers, airports, and innovative SMEs. A non-exhaustive list of our valued partners includes Airbus, Alenia Aermacchi, DLR, NLR, Thales, Dassault Aviation, UCL, etc.
