ETSA have entered into an agreement with the National Center for Simulation (NCS), based in Orlando Florida. Through mutual membership of each other’s organisations, and by working together, ETSA and NCS hope better to address the needs of the Modelling, Simulation and Training (MS&T) communities on both sides of the Atlantic.
ETSA and NCS are both not-for-profit organisations who have totally complementary objectives. This agreement therefore makes good sense and is well overdue in coming about!
George E. Cheros, NSC President/CEO said: “I look forward to this mutually beneficial arrangement between two like-minded organisations and to future collaboration to advance all elements of the MS&T industry on a worldwide basis.
Steve (Wilkie) Wilkinson, ETSA CEO added: “Last week, we worked together on an event to promote the Orlando Simulation Cluster to European MS&T companies and to help them understand doing business within the USA. This is the first of our joint initiatives and I look forward to doing more with NCS for the benefit of the trans-Atlantic MS&T communities”.

European Training and Simulation Association (ETSA)
ETSA has established itself as “The European Voice” of the MS&T community.
The European Training and Simulation Association CIC (ETSA) is a not-for-profit Membership Association. ETSA represents the European training and simulation community. It provides a non-partisan environment for government bodies, academia, users and suppliers within Europe to network, exchange opportunities, ideas, information and strategies on education, training and simulation technology & methodology.
ETSA undergoes, and co-ordinates, research, development and innovation work to promote and help instigate, improve and extend the widespread use and efficacy of modelling and simulation technologies (including virtual, augmented and mixed reality) and practices for training and other applications throughout the European community.
ETSA organises seminars, workshops, visits and interest groups. It runs a website and exclusive members’ portal through which ETSA members can access; informative data and contact details for organisations within the MS&T community, MS&T newsfeeds, forums and data repository, together with details of upcoming MS&T events. ETSA also provides Member discounts/benefits at many major training & simulation exhibitions, conferences and events World-wide.
