Full details, including programme and registration information, are available here.
This year the annual conference organised by the RAeS Women in Aviation and Aerospace Committee has broadened its scope to focus on the most talked-about developments in science and engineering and their effect on the future for aviation, aerospace and space. The conference is also highlighting its appeal to a wide and diverse audience across all sectors of the industry. Now in its seventh year, the conference has proved to be highly popular with delegates – not just because of the high-calibre talks, but also as a valuable networking event.
The 2013 conference takes place in a year notable for the 50th anniversary of the first woman in space, Russian cosmonaut, Valentina Tereshkova. Her achievement has inspired the theme of the conference – ‘The Next 50 Years in Aviation, Aerospace and Space’. An impressive line-up of speakers will tackle ground-breaking developments such as nanotechnology, 3-D printing and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, considering how they will contribute to future developments. The conference will also hear about the workforce of tomorrow, the people who will be responsible for driving forward these future developments. It will also include a talk on ‘Testing the Aircraft of the Future’ by sponsor Airbus’ test pilot, Isabelle Montet- Guerin.
