The European Society of Aerospace Medicine was founded in 2006 as an umbrella organisation in the field of Aerospace Medicine. As a pan-European, independent forum, it works to promote the safety and health of all persons involved in aviation and space operations , and to coordinate European aerospace medical interests across all national and organisational boundaries.
We aim to assist the various responsible bodies in the development and harmonisation of educational activities in aerospace medicine throughout Europe, and to develop continuous information flows and dialogue between the National Aeromedical Associations, and encourage the exchange of scientific results and experience. We strive to reach a consensus which can then contribute to the scientific evidence base which should be the foundation of aeromedical decision making.
EASA has been working on setting up a PhD scheme to develop partnerships with European Universities and academia, to share and disseminate knowledge in innovative, emerging fields relevant to aviation.
A Press Release was released on the EASA website to announce a call for abstracts from PhD students for the following domains:
• Artificial intelligence (AI) in aviation
1. Development of applications integrated into civil aviation products along EASA AI roadmap, including validation and verification solutions
• Impact of climate change and extreme weather phenomena on the air transport system
1. Methodologies and tools for assessing the impact of changes to weather phenomena on civil air transport system components and operations
• Environmental sustainability of air transport (emissions, noise, air quality, other nuisance, ...)
1. Methodologies and tools to assess the impact of aviation products and operations and the proposed mitigations
• New approaches and methods for safety risk management in aviation
1. New methods, tools to support safety analysis, risk identification and management, safety culture
Dear Member Associations ,
Here is your Nomination Committee Chair again, this time with another request.
During our GA at the ICAM conference in Paris, we should also appoint a new Nomination Committee of 3 persons, and 2 new Auditors !
The actual ones were appointed at the congress in Prague and their replacement is overdue. It are not difficult tasks, for the Nominating Committee every year around this time the member associations must be reminded about the vote for a new President-Elect or a new Executive Committee (alternating) , the practical issues are handled by our webmaster and administrative assistant ; for the auditors, at the GA they go through the (small) financial book-keeping together with our treasurer to check if it has been handled correctly.
The European Society of Aerospace Medicine’s Academy organizes an Advanced Aeromedical Examiners (AME) Course from 28 September to 21 October, 2022
We offer 42 hours of online lectures combined with 24 hours of practical training at the Norwegian Institute of Aviation Medicine in Oslo.
The online lectures start on 28 September 2022 and will be held each Wednesday and Friday (3 hours - late afternoon), Saturday (6 hours), and Sunday (4 hours). Sufficient breaks will be provided. Sunday 16 October is left free for travel to Oslo. The practical training will be given from Monday 17 till Friday 21 October 2022 and will be concluded with a written examination.Read more
