The FᴜᴛPʀIɴᴛ50 project team is particularly proud to have included in its plans the FᴜᴛPʀIɴᴛ50 Academy.

The engineers of the future are given the opportunity to perform Master theses on key topics identified within the FᴜᴛPʀIɴᴛ50 project under the supervision of university professors and the mentoring of FᴜᴛPʀIɴᴛ50 partners. Interaction with FᴜᴛPʀIɴᴛ50 leading researchers and industry experts, knowledge and ideas exchange will be achieved via web conferences, continuous professional development courses, seminars and physical workshops.

FᴜᴛPʀIɴᴛ50 aims at fostering a strong network of graduate and postgraduate students, and young engineers interested in the hybrid-electric topic. The establishment of a FUTPRINT50 academy will help preparing the future professionals for the challenges of Flightpath 2050. Apart from that the project team will share new scientific knowledge and skills that are aligned with the future needs of the aviation industry while participants will also get familiar with novel tools that will be developed over the course of the project and are aligned with the hybrid-electric matters.
