Airbus Announces Fly Your Ideas Challenge with €30,000 Prize

Airbus recently announced the Fly Your Ideas (FYI) student challenge at the Going Global international education conference in London. The competition will allow university students to execute their own ideas for the future of the aviation industry. The theme this year is based on eco-efficiency in air travel and participants will vie for a €30,000 prize.

Airbus, a global enterprise focused on research and technology, requires that the FYI 2013 proposals address issues such as affordability, energy efficiency, passenger experience, and traffic growth. Participants will have the opportunity to work with industry and business leaders. As well, students and their academic mentors will have an Airbus mentor for guidance in the planning of the project and an Airbus expert in their chosen field.

“Solutions will require thinking out of the box,” said Charles Champion, Executive Vice President Engineering at Airbus and FYI 2013 patron, in a statement. “At Airbus, we work in a world of unobtainiums, solutions for seemingly impossible challenges that shape the way we live–like those that made air travel a reality. We want students to adopt that innovative spirit in FYI 2013.”

The competition goes hand in hand with the Going Global conference, which places an emphasis on the “future world” and a “connected world.” The company hopes that this project will inspire the younger generation to work on future challenges. Students of all backgrounds, from engineering and marketing to information technology and design, are encouraged to apply.

“It is diversity that makes a difference,” Champion remarked in the statement. “FYI 2013 attracts a broad spectrum of talented students and gives them the opportunity to work with us on the challenges we face and the opportunities they hold for aviation in tomorrow’s world.”

FYI was previously held in 2011, with entries from over 2,600 students representing 287 universities and 25 nations. To enter FYI 2013, students must register as a team of three to five people at Registration is open May 2012 with the competition starting in September.
