Europe's Clean Sky research program, a Joint Technology Initiative
will be built on six key research areas: smart active fixed-wing aircraft that will sense airflow and adapt their shape as required, green regional aircraft, green rotorcraft, sustainable and green engines and systems for green operations that will focus on all-electric aircraft equipment and system architectures, thermal management, capabilities for "green" trajectories and missions and improved ground operations.
Seven major European aerospace companies--Airbus SAS, Dassault Aviation, Eurocopter SAS, Liebherr-Aerospace Lindenberg, Rolls-Royce, Safran and Thales--signed a letter of intent in a Joint Technology Initiative
"to radically improve the impact of air transport on the environment and.
This second call by the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Technology Initiative
(JTI) sees Commission funding of 71.
The Clean Sky Joint Technology Initiative
, which manages the Clean Sky research programme on cleaner, quieter and more aerodynamic aircraft (800 million for 2007-2013), has issued its eighth call for proposals.
There will also be an overview of other initiatives such as the fuel cell and hydrogen joint technology initiative
and the lead markets initiative.
Indeed, the EU supports the development of hydrogen energy through the European Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology Platform and the Joint Technology Initiative
