Role in the project
TU Delft will coordinate the PASSME project and is therefore leading Work Package (WP) 9 Project Management, with Peter Vink as an experienced EU Project Coordinator. Next, TU Delft will lead WP 1 based on its expertise in a variety of fields like SCM, service design, participatory design, design for aviation operations and aviation ecosystem. With these expertise TU Delft will also play a key role in WPs 3 and 5.
