Airbus has launched its fifth Fly Your Ideas global student challenge, which gives students the opportunity to co-innovate with Airbus on challenges within the aviation industry.

The challenge, which occurs every two years, calls on students to develop skills such as teamwork, project management and communication skills to submit solutions to industry challenges.
 
The challenges posed to students include using big data to improve efficiency and how could layouts change to improve passenger boarding.
 
“With Fly Your Ideas 2017, Airbus offers its innovation expertise to team up with universities and their most inventive students. For Airbus, it is an opportunity to nurture new ideas from the imaginative and unrestrained thinking of fresh minds,” said Charles Champion, Airbus executive vice president, Engineering.
 
Registration for the competition has opened today, with students entering in teams of up to five members to compete to win a prize of €30,000 (USD33,460).
