Croatia Airlines - Croatia Airlines participates in the KAAT project

Croatia Airlines participates in the KAAT project


KAAT (Knowledge Alliance in Air Transport) is an ERASUMS+ KA2 project, financed from European funds, with University Politechnica of Bucharest as the lead partner. There are 16 partners from 6 EU countries participating: France, Croatia, Italy, Portugal, Romania and Slovakia. 

Croatia Airlines, the Croatian national carrier and a certified training center, with its operational potential and experience, contributes as one of the partners in the Croatian consortium, together with University of Zagreb - Faculty of Traffic and Transport Sciences, Croatia Control and Aeronautical Technical Center.

The idea behind the project is to bring closer higher education institutions and aviation industry enterprises, defining an EU curriculum that will fulfill the needs of aviation industry enterprises.

The project is developed as a result of the need for better qualified workers, curriculum modernisation and innovative and multidisciplinary approaches, a much better link between occupations and qualifications and in the end, the need for an improved dialogue between universities and employers. University Politechnica of Bucharest gathered together partners from different areas of the air transport industry for best possible results.

The main goal of the project is to develop innovative European study programmes based on ICT (information and telecommunication technologies), which will ensure high qualified workers.

The KAAT project was launched in Bucharest in January 2018 and should be finished by the end of December 2020.

The last time that project partners got together in person was in October 2019 in Rome, after which all meetings and communication were conducted virtually. Accordingly, the gathering of partners planned for May this year in Strasbourg was postponed until autumn. If, due to the epidemiological situation, organising the meeting will be impossible even then, it has been agreed that it will be held as part of the final meeting planned to be held next year in Bucharest.

Together with partners, the Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences of the University of Zagreb is, just like last year, organising the international ZIRP 2020 conference this year as well. Instead of in Šibenik as initially planned, the conference will be held virtually on 29th and 30th September this year. Some partners in the KAAT project are expected to participate in the conference, where they will present the results of their research conducted so far.
