the National Aerospace University "KhAI"
into European Research Area





The KhAI-ERA project is a special support action funded by the European Commission within FP7 Capacities Specific Programme which aims to reinforce National Aerospace University “KhAI”  research cooperation capacities in order to become more closely integrated into the European Research Area (ERA).

The KhAI-ERA project will build upon KhAI’s existing strengths as a high-quality research institution via twinning with four excellent European research and innovation organisations in its 3 strongest aerospace and IT research topics:

  • Topic A – Composite Materials
  • Topic B –  Advanced Manufacturing for Aircraft Assembly
  • Topic C – Dependable Embedded Systems

KhAI-ERA will be implemented by a dedicated team of experienced researchers from KhAI and consortium partners’ organizations from December 2011 to November    2014. As a result of the KhAI-ERA project implementation, KhAI participation in European Research Area including EU R&D Programmes and its Regional Socio-Economic Impacts will be increased.
