The “NDTonAIR” project [1] is a Marie Skłodowska Curie European Training Network funded under the action: H2020-MSCA-ITN-2016- GRANT 722134. The “NDTonAIR” consortium joins Universities and Research Organisations working on the main Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) and Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) techniques with major European companies operating in aerospace for which NDT is a key ingredient of the daily work [2]. The goal is to train a new generation of scientists having a wide background of theoretical and experimental skills in NDT, capable of developing their research and entrepreneurial activities both in academy and industry and playing an active role in promoting the importance of quality inspection and structural monitoring in all the production processes. The objective of the training programme is to provide at the recruited researchers an extensive and varied training on: (1) “Fundamentals skills” for NDT and SHM through participation at short-courses and seminars organized by the Consortium; (2) “NDT Techniques for Aerospace” through research training at host institutions and participation in Workshops and Conferences organized by the Consortium and by major international research associations; (3) “Technology Transfer and Entrepreneurial” through participation at short-courses and seminars organized by the Consortium. The objective of the research programme is to consolidate and innovate current NDT and SHM techniques for Aircraft inspection by (1) investigating new physical phenomena and sensors; (2) developing analytical and numerical models to correlate the results of inspection with material properties; (3) quantifying NDT techniques through their probability of detecting reference defects; (4) developing procedures for the automatic detection and classification of defects; (5) transferring these results to industries. The NDTonAIR consortium is eager to establish training and research collaborations with other companies and research organization involved in aerospace and in NDT and SHM in general. NDTonAIR activities are open to students, PhD, Post-doc and researchers from outside the consortium. During the ECNDT2018 conference we want give to the attendees more details about the next training events and on the specific research projects carried out by Early Stage Researchers.
