“It's all about having the skills, knowing how to innovate, and make products for a customer.”
Aldert Kamp - Director of Education, TU Delft

“I strongly believe that Airnovation helped me to continue gaining experience in the several disciplines that compose the aeronautics field, and to have a better understanding of values like teamwork, creativity, innovation or accountability, which are nothing but essential in the dynamic world we live in.”
2016 Airnovator -

“To be able to communicate with people from so many different backgrounds and nationalities in so short a duration and be able to come up with something tangible at the end of the week was marvelous!”

“The academy made me realize other important dimensions of an “engineer”, such as how to orient technical skills towards value creation, how to pinpoint the real issue to make greater impact.”
