Watch live @ AIAA SciTech


In cooperation with the AIAA Young Professionals Group, our early career network have organized this session at AIAA SciTech on behalf of IFAR. IFAR aims to connect research organizations worldwide, and to enable the information exchange and communication on aviation research activities and to develop an understanding on challenges faced by the global aviation research community among its members, which include NASA. And our virtual exchange series is meant to develop the career capabilities of researchers and employees of the IFAR member organizations and the greater aeronautical R&D community!
