The EASN Association, the National Technical University of Athens (R-Nano Lab) and the University of Patras organised the 9th EASN International Conference on “Innovation in Aviation & Space” which took place in Athens, Greece from the 3rd until the 6th of September, 2019. Around 450 people attended the conference and shared their innovative ideas, breakthrough concepts and disruptive technologies. In total, 9 Key-Note Lectures and more than 360 technical presentations were distributed in approximately 70 sessions. Also, 40 HORIZON2020 projects have disseminated their latest research results as well as the future trends on the respective technological field.

Within a session “Nano-/micro-composites by design: methodologies and tools for enhanced properties against performance/reliability failure”, Repair3D partners NTUA and UGENT prepared a joint presentation with title “3D printed CFRPs and micro-composite products by design from recycled resources” where a general overview of the Repair3D project and CFRP 3D printing technologies were presented

Ghent University (Repair3D partner), hosted the M6 project meeting review at their facilities. All Repair3D partners had the opportunity to talk about their progress in the project. One of the partners, NTUA, discussed about their initiative of placing plastic recycling bins at their University campus, where they are collecting bottles and caps (PET, PE and PP), as part of their activities in the project.
At the end it was agreed that this progress meeting has been a very fruitful one for all.

Repair3D Partner, ADAMANT from Greece, participated in the Patras Innovation Quest (Patras IQ) exhibition on the 12th, 13th and 14th of April 2019. Patras Innovation Quest (PatrasIQ) takes place in Patras every year and attracts both the general public and the academic-research community of Greece with an estimated exposure to 5-10k people. The event was co-organized by University of Patras, the Ministry of Education, Research & Religious Affairs, the Ministry of Economy & Development, the Chamber of Achaia, the Region of Western Greece, the Hellenic Open University and the Technological Educational Institute of Western Greece. Its main objective was to create a critical competitive advantage both in the research community as well as in the productive sector, through a constant effort to solve problems and apply innovative ideas for the development of new products and services and the optimization of existing ones, which aspire to conquer a part of the national and global market. ADAMANT’s participation was aimed to promote the projects they are involved in. They prepared and presented the activities of ADAMANT and a poster of the Repair3D project as well.
