The European Society of Aerospace Medicine was founded in 2006 as an umbrella organisation in the field of Aerospace Medicine. As a pan-European, independent forum, it works to promote the safety and health of all persons involved in aviation and space operations , and to coordinate European aerospace medical interests across all national and organisational boundaries.
We aim to assist the various responsible bodies in the development and harmonisation of educational activities in aerospace medicine throughout Europe, and to develop continuous information flows and dialogue between the National Aeromedical Associations, and encourage the exchange of scientific results and experience. We strive to reach a consensus which can then contribute to the scientific evidence base which should be the foundation of aeromedical decision making.

Dear EAAP members and partners,
We are very excited to announce that the EAAP Advisory Group on Selection is organising an EAAP Selection Seminar on 27th and 28th September 2023 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
The seminar will be free of charge and aims to bring selection professionals working in aviation together and will be kindly hosted by The Netherlands Aerospace Centre (NLR).
As we realise that not everyone interested will be able to travel to The Netherlands we will also be offering the possibility to follow the seminar online.
We work together across Europe to promote the health, performance and safety of people who fly through the use of evidence science and consensus.
