One thought on “SESAR 2020

  1. “Upon reading those documents, it seems to me that a single university, let alone a department or a group, will not have the clout to make a successful EoI for SESAR 2020 SJU membership, but I might be mistaken here. So would it make sense for ASDA to apply, as un umbrella for us all?
    Cheers, Pierre”
