Recipients: AFLoNext (Active Flow-Loads & Noise Control on next Generation Wing), International
Recipient: Mr. Martin Wahlich, Germany
Citation: AFLoNext was a five-year EU-funded project with the participation of 40 partners from 15 European countries. which has delivered outstanding results in the field of flow control technologies for novel aircraft configurations. By maturing key technologies that have the potential to significantly reduce the environmental footprint of large passenger aircraft operations, the European aeronautics industry will reap benefits from this project for decades 10 come, helping 10 secure its leading position in the global aviation industry.
