Call for proposals under the programme of the 7th EC Framework Programme for Research, Technological Development and Demonstration Activities - Cooperation - FP7-AAT-2008-RTD-1 FP7 Closed!

Objectives

Developing technologies to reduce the environmental impact of aviation with the aim to halve the emitted carbon dioxide (CO2), cut specific emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx) by 80% and halve the perceived noise. Research will focus on furthering green engine technologies including alternative fuels technology  s well as improved vehicle efficiency of fixed-wing and rotary wing aircraft (including helicopters and tiltrotors), new intelligent low-weight structures, and improved aerodynamics. Issues such as improved aircraft operations at the airport (airside and landside) and air traffic management, manufacturing, maintenance and recycling processes will be included.
