External Research and Innovation Advisory Board
The role of the External Research and Innovation Advisory Board is to assess the direction of the AQuRA project and give advice and support on project wide activities of research, development, innovation, implementation, collaboration and dissemination. The Board consists of the following members:
Dr. Gwendoline Pajot-Métivier - Researcher at the Institut national de l’information géographique et forestière
Mr. Paolo Bianco - Airbus
Paolo Bianco got graduated in Aeronautical Engineering in Turin (Italy) after having graduated as Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering at Cranfield University in UK and having studied in prestigious technical universities across Europe. He started working with European Commission (EC) before graduation, when he co-founded a European Economic Interest Group to run projects in response to EC thematic network calls.
After a period as project management consultant, Paolo started his career in space at CGS (now OHB), Milan, Italy, then he joined Astrium, now Airbus, in Portsmouth, UK. In his role of space system engineer, Paolo has designed systems for Earth orbit and for interplanetary missions. Currently most of such systems are either flying or being finalized for flight. In parallel, as technologist Paolo has developed a wide range of diverse technologies for space and aerospace applications. This eventually became his main job as Global R&T Cooperation Manager for Airbus Defense and Space, with remit on UK and Asia-Pacific.
In 2015 he got involved in Quantum Technologies (QTs), investigating and assessing on how to apply them to Airbus operation and products of Defence and Space division. He provided inputs on QTs application to the European Parliament (STOA) and the House of Parliament (POST), consultancy research definition to the European Commission for the deployment of the QT Flagship (High Level Steering Committee member), advice on QT adoption to European Space Agency (QT Space Report contributor) and more recently he joined the Quantum Space Network.
