Clean Sky Joint Technology Initiative issues €32.3M call for proposals for areas related to green technology and aircraft
The European Clean Sky Joint Technology Initiative (earlier post) has published a call for proposals for areas related to green technology and aircraft. The budget for this call is €32.3 million (US$42.2 million).
The areas covered by the call include:
- eco design;
- green regional aircraft;
- green rotorcraft;
- sustainable and green engines;
- smart fixed wing aircraft;
- systems for green operations;
- technology evaluator.
Aircraft have a 30-year service life, and new aviation design takes more than a decade to develop. The aim of Clean Sky is to develop breakthrough technologies to significantly increase the environmental performance of airplanes and air transport. This will result in less noisy and more fuel efficient aircraft, bringing a key contribution in achieving the Single European Sky environmental objectives. The accelerated research process used by Clean Sky is an opportunity for rapid progress in the introduction of green technology into aviation.
The joint technology initiative (JTI) started in 2008 and is a public-private partnership between the European Commission and industry stakeholders.
