European Workshop on Aircraft Design Education (EWADE)

"The European Workshops on Aircraft Design Education" have formed a forum for academic staff active in aircraft design education at European universities.

EWADE 2018 - 14th European Workshop on Aircraft Design Education

The next EWADE will be from 7th to 9th November 2018 together with READ at Brno University of Technology, Czech Republic.

READ has a long history dating as far back as EWADE which also started in 1994.

Organizer for READ is Prof. Jaroslav Juracka, director of the Institute of Aerospace Engineering. Following this workshop, EWADE will come back to its usual schedule with offering a workshop in the odd year of 2019. With the additional offer of a workshop in 2018, EWADE temporarily switches to an annual sequence. Please submit your Abstract until 8th April 2018 on the Homepage of EWADE 2018.

History back to the Roots

The first European Workshop on Aircraft Design Education was held in Madrid in 1994 and was hosted by the University of Madrid (ETSIA). There were approximately 25 participants from 10 countries. Other workshops followed, often with an increasing number of participants. All workshops were arranged with financial support and contributions of the industry. Since 1994 EWADE is know as an affectionate community of people with similar interests. Today, everyone is welcome to participate and to contribute with a presentation or poster. Here is the list of all past EWADE workshops:
  • 13th  Workshop: 2017 Bucharest
  • 12th  Workshop: 2015 Delft
  • 11th  Workshop: 2013 Linköping
  • 10th  Workshop: 2011 Naples
  •   9th  Workshop: 2009 Sevilla
  •   8th  Workshop: 2007 Samara
  •              Meeting: 2006 Hamburg
  •   7th  Workshop: 2005 Toulouse
  •   6th  Workshop: 2004 Brno
  •   5th  Workshop: 2002 Linköping
  •   4th  Workshop: 2000 Turin
  •   3rd  Workshop: 1998 Bristol
  •   2nd Workshop: 1996 Berlin
  •   1st  Workshop: 1994 Madrid



After the Madrid Workshop in 1994 it was agreed that workshops would be organized every two years, hosted by those participants who can find sufficient financial support from their university and from their local or national industry. Objectives are formulated as follows:
  • To allow European lecturers concerned with Aircraft Design to continue their active collaboration.
  • To discuss Aircraft Design problems as regards research and education.
  • To enhance close cooperation with the aerospace industry for the two aspects mentioned above.
In order to allow local organizers the greatest possible freedom and to keep the initiative open as possible to those who are interested to join at any time, it was decided, at least for the time being, not to establish a formal organization.
