Airbus Fly Your Ideas is a biennial global competition, organised in partnership with UNESCO, which challenges students to innovate for the future of sustainable aviation. At Airbus, we’re constantly looking for new, better ways to fly and that’s what Fly Your Ideas is all about.
Genuine industry challenges, linked to the commercial aircraft industry identified by Airbus, provide real and concrete aviation problems for students to solve. Students are asked to test, prototype and visualise their ideas to create genuine solutions in Round 2. These solutions can either be innovations for ‘Now’ or innovations for the ‘Future’; inviting a cross section of ideas that are both applicable today and deliver blue sky thinking for tomorrow.
Students involved in the competition will have the opportunity to join online communities to exchange with Airbus experts and mentors, academics and students worldwide, mirroring the online digital environment of the education sector today.
This hugely popular global student competition is a chance for Gadjah Mada University students to :
· Develop their technical and employability skills
· Work in teams on real-world aviation challenges, with support from Airbus employees
· Share €45 000 in prize money
This year, teams can choose to work on one of 5 Challenges and interact directly with Airbus Experts via our new Online Expert Communities. The top 5 teams will join Airbus for a week of testing, prototyping or visualisation of their ideas, before presenting their projects to a jury at the live final event. Interested students must register, form a team and then submit their Round 1 idea by 25 November 2016.
