|Event name||EUFAR Workshop on Stratospheric Research|
|Start date||04/05/2017 09:00|
|End date||05/05/2017 18:05|
In the previous EUFAR contract (2008 - 2013), maintaining the capability of a stratospheric research aircraft was indicated as a priority for the development of the European airborne fleet. To this aim, various solutions continue to be explored in the current EUFAR project (2014 - 2018), either investigating how to access existing stratospheric aircraft outside Europe or on ensuring the long-term availability of a full European platform.
One of the tasks of the current EUFAR project is to organise a workshop where scientists involved in the field of stratospheric airborne research would gather to:
1. define future research topics that may be tackled by a stratospheric research aircraft
Following the recommendations on the opportunity to maintain and foster airborne stratospheric research capabilities, this may result in structuring a proposal at an international or European level to grant access to an existing aircraft or implement a new platform.
The workshop will be held at the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR) headquarters (Piazzale Aldo Moro 7 - Aula SILVESTRI, Rome, Italy).
