  • Double-PhD programme between the recruiting Host Institution and the Joint Institution
  • Academic Secondment at the Joint University providing the double-PhD degree.
  • Secondment at one non-academic partner organisation
  • Four network training school are organized to build a common background knowledge on state of the art on in-flight ice accretion. Training on transferrable skills is also provided.
  • Three Project Working Groups (PWGs) composed by 5 DRs are defined to train the DR on transferrable skills. Each Research Project of the PWGs is aimed at finalizing a project design to be assessed by industries and the certification authorities EASA and FAA during the Design and Certification Exercise, which will mimic the certification procedure of aircraft components in icing conditions.
