The overall concept of AERO-UKRAINE project was to facilitate research co-operation between aeronautics actors from the EU and Ukraine. The project achieved its overall aim via a range of activities:

Assessing and publicising the aeronautics collaboration potential between the EU and Ukraine. This involved mapping the Ukrainian aeronautics actors; reporting on opportunities for Ukrainian aeronautics actors in the EU; and production of a "National Report on aeronautics R&D in the Ukraine";

Raising awareness and understanding of EU aeronautics collaborative research. On the one side, this involved organising FP7 aeronautics events in Ukraine that combine awareness-raising, training and networking with EU aeronautics actors. First such event was held at Kiev Ukraine on 28th-29th of October 2009. Amongst one hundred participants were representatives of the European Commission, representatives of major European R&D establishments like AIRBUS, DLR, ETW and Ukrainian representatives from different field of aeronautical R&D like ANTONOV ASTC, Ivchenko-Progress and universities like Physics-technological institute NASU or The Odessa National Polytechnic University. During the successful two-day event twenty nine presentations were delivered by the various participants all downloadable from the project website. On the other side, it involves Ukrainian aeronautics actors presenting their aeronautics research at aeronautics events in the EU;

Supporting participation in FP7 aeronautics research. This involves preparing for the establishment of an FP7 Aeronautics NCP in Ukraine and supporting Ukrainian aeronautics organisations to join consortia preparing FP7 research proposals.

The project has started on the 01st of April of 2009 and lasts for two years. The Consortium members are Antonov ASTC, SE Ivchenko-Progress, IPMS-NASU, KhAI, Intelligentsia Consultants, Patras University and Slot Consulting.
