The Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (AUAS) and the Sustainable Aviation Research Society (SARES) are proud to jointly organise the 4th edition of the International Cross-industry Safety Conference (ICSC) and the 2nd International Symposium on Aircraft Technology, MRO and Operations (ISATECH).


ICSC aims to function as a platform to disseminate and share knowledge and experience about safety within and between industry and academia. This conference has become a hub for discussing current and future safety challenges and ways to deal with them. 


ISATECH is an international, multi-disciplinary symposium aiming to address current issues in the field of aerospace such as MRO advanced technologies, data analytics and air transportation operations among others.


The Aviation Academy, part of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, performs research into real-life cases and problems in the aviation sector, focusing on safety, MRO process improvement, composites and aviation capacity. Our goal is to improve and innovate professional practice.

We perform all of our research projects in close cooperation with industry, governmental agencies and scientific institutions or universities. This ensures a solid connection with state-of-the-art scientific knowledge, as well as a focus on the most urgent and current problems and challenges on the shop floor.


SARES is a multi-disciplinary initiative and international organisation to promote, develop and support aviation researches on innovative researches, improve the management tools and systems in the aerodrome, airplane technologies management and operations research, sustainability and social awareness training.



The Safety and Reliability Society (SaRS) is the professional body for safety, reliability and risk management practitioners. Internationally recognised for our path to professional registration for engineers (CEng and IEng), we work to educate the next generation through professional development, and encourage the application of industry standard safety and reliability techniques by individuals, organisations and governments.
