Hosted by EUFAR partner DLR, the German Space Agency, the 2nd EUFAR General Assembly (GA) took place from 25 - 27 March 2015 in Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany. The Strategic Advisory Committee (SAC) and 5 networking and joint research activities also took this occasion to hold their own side meetings on the 24 and morning of 25 March prior to the GA. A total of 54 participants attended the GA, SAC and side meetings, representing 21 of EUFAR2’s partner consortium, and including SAC members and invited guests from NASA. The participants were also treated to a tour of DLR’s flight experiments hangars and the German Aircraft Museum.
Each networking and joint activity leader presented achievements, progress, challenges and future plans of the deliverables and tasks under his/her respective activity. At the end of the meeting, a full list of short-term actions collected during the GA, was presented and agreed on. A couple of organisations indicated their interest to hold the next General Assembly in 2016. The GA meeting report and presentations are available on the EUFAR website, accessible to registered members.
