Aviation Academy

GARS Junior Researchers' Workshop


In cooperation with the Aviation Academy of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences and Airneth, the University of Applied Sciences Bremen is happy to host the annual GARS student research workshop in Amsterdam. We are also pleased to announce that we will offer a newly designed prize for the best paper. The winner will receive the European Price in Aviation Economics and Management at the 6th European Aviation Conference 13 and 14 Nov 2017, Dublin, Ireland. This time we plan to have a session on aviation in Africa. Therefore papers and posters on this topic are welcome.


Crises in Aviation, Expansion and Evolution of Low Cost Carriers, Slots, Airport and Airway Congestion, Sustainability, Liberalization and Privatisation… The list of hot topics in aviation is long and is attracting a growing number of students whose primary research interest is in aviation. Often these researchers lack contact with other students in their field of research. GARS invites all Bachelor, Master, Diploma or PhD students to present their work in the second workshop on research in aviation. The research seminar is open to all topics in the field of aviation economics and management. Interdisciplinary research is encouraged. A senior researcher will be selected to provide two to four pages of written comments on student papers which are submitted by the due date. As research is always work in progress, we encourage people to present their work at any stage. This will provide valuable feedback as well as opportunities for new sources of information.


A discussant will be drawn from a group of people, subject to availability. This list of people can be downloaded here.
