Call for Proposals - Aeronautics and Air Transport (AAT)-2013-RTD-Russia FP7-AAT-2013-RTD-Russia Closed!


The general objective of this call is to develop integrated, safer, “greener” and “smarter” pan-European transport systems based on technological and operational advances and on the European transport policy for the benefit of all citizens and society and climate policy, respecting the environment and natural resources; and securing and further developing the competitiveness attained by the European industries in the global market.

Reflecting the new political context and the priority given to the Innovation Union, a new approach has been adopted for Work Programme 2013 (WP 2013). This new approach is based on focusing on major socio-economic challenges and responding to societal concerns. The work programme is structured accordingly to these challenges and addresses the innovation cycle in its integrity, while respecting the rules of competition. The Transport theme takes a holistic ‘transport system’ approach in addressing the challenges and the innovation dimension, by considering the interactions of vehicles or vessels, networks or infrastructures and the use of transport services. Such an approach will necessitate the integration and demonstration of new concepts, knowledge and technologies, and the support to bringing them to the market within a socio-economic and policy context. Given the different structure and focus of the sectors, the theme is divided into sub-themes (accordingly with the Specific Programme) and horizontal activities:

  • 7.2. SUSTAINABLE SURFACE TRANSPORT (SST) including the ‘European Green Cars Initiative’
  • 7.4. GALILEO

In particular, this call is under the 7.1. AERONAUTICS and AIR TRANSPORT (AAT) topic. Innovation in AAT is promoted by a coherent set of R&I actions at various levels of technology readiness going from future technologies (Level 0 – a new element in FP7-AAT) via upstream research (Level 1) to technology integration, demonstration and validation (Level 2) and final demonstrators in the appropriate operational environment (Level 3: ‘Clean Sky’ and SESAR). From research and technology development to market, all relevant actors should be present in project partnerships. The key industrial participants are expected to bring innovative products and services to the market, particularly in downstream research.
