The competition is an offer from Airbus to students worldwide to bring their ideas to life together with a leading global company on real industry challenges. Airbus says it is looking for ideas that change the future of aerospace and create a safer, cleaner, and better-connected world.

Airbus announced it has chosen 51 international student teams to go into Round 2 of its sixth Fly Your Ideas global challenge. During Round 1, from September to November 2018, students were invited to submit innovative ideas in six key areas -- electrification, data services, cyber security, the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, and mixed reality.

The competition is an offer from Airbus to students worldwide to bring their ideas to life together with a leading global company on real industry challenges. Airbus says it is looking for ideas that change the future of aerospace and create a safer, cleaner, and better-connected world.

The shortlisted teams involve 179 students representing 47 nationalities from 66 universities. The company said they developed ideas that included solutions for surveillance drones, alternative power generation, groundbreaking in-flight entertainment systems, and more. The teams now have three months to mature their ideas with the support of Airbus mentors and aerospace experts before as many as six finalists are selected.

Finalist teams will compete for a share of the €45,000 prize and the chance to take their idea forward within the aerospace industry. Teams will share project updates, photos, sketches and stories using #flyyourideas and will be captured on the social wall on www.airbus-fyi.com.

Most of the participating students are from engineering, digital, and technology disciplines, with 90 percent of them studying subjects such as engineering, information technology, nanotechnology, or telecommunications. Countries that are represented for the first time in Round 2 include Ghana, Kazakhstan, Vietnam, and Zimbabwe.
