EUROAVIA is the European Association of Aerospace Students, representing the interests of over 2000 students from 38 universities in 19 European countries. Established in 1959, EUROAVIA wants to be a bridge between companies, universities and students. Its goals are:
To promote European cooperation in the aerospace field by providing opportunities for our members to meet, exchange and learn on all levels.
To internationally represent European aerospace students.
To acquaint student members with their future working environment stimulating contacts with the industry. EUROAVIA works to develop current and future leaders promoting the EUROAVIA Spirit, a set of common values based upon hard work, innovation, cultural awareness, team work and international networking.
Being both a non-political and non-profit association, EUROAVIA is managed exclusively by voluntary students with its various activities and projects entirely financed by membership fees, sponsorship and participation fees.
Each year various activities are organized throughout Europe:
Local activities, for which the Local Groups are responsible, and which include: visits, workshops, lectures, parties and social events;
International events coordinated by the International Board: fly-ins, Congress meetings, symposiums, the Design Contest / Design Workshop and also airshow presences (EUROAVIA participates in major aerospace exhibitions in Europe, being present at ILA, Berlin, Farnborough and Le Bourget, Paris).
