Call for Proposals 2017 - 07 - Clean Sky 2 H2020-CS2-CFP07-2017-02 Closed!


The overall objectives for the Clean Sky 2 programme for the period 2018-2019 are:

  •  To execute the technical content as defined for the two-year period and as stabilized at the end of 2017 and upon completion of the private member accession through the four core partner calls executed from 2014 through 2017, and ensure this is adequately incorporated in the Clean Sky 2 Development Plan and the grant agreements;
  • To determine in the course of 2018 – 2019 the definitive configuration of the Programme’s major demonstrators and technology development themes, based on robust risk and progress reviews based on the 2017 baseline set in the CS2DP; where necessary diverting resources to safeguard the achievement of the programme’s High-Level Goals [HLGs];
  • To implement solutions for leveraging Clean Sky 2 funding with structural funds;
  • To implement an effective and efficient management and governance of the programme ;
  • To implement an appropriate and agreed approach for each transverse area that allows for the transversal coordination to be executed and technical synergies to be extracted;
  • To implement four further calls for proposals [including the seventh call to be launched end 2017 and closing in the first quarter of 2018], and implement within these calls the additional and complementary format of “thematic topics” enabling a wide range of competing technology solutions to address broad problem-oriented topics that are geared towards the Clean Sky 2 programme-level HLGs;
  • To widely disseminate the information about the calls for proposals (for partners), in order to reach a healthy level of applications and ensure the success of the topics; including participation from SMEs higher than 35%. To proceed with the selection of participants through these calls;
  • To ensure a time-to-grant no greater than eight months for the calls for proposal in no less than 80% of topics and selected proposals;
  • To execute at least 90% of the budget and of the relevant milestones and deliverables;
  • To ensure a high level of technical and process integrity in the execution of the programme, including the calls and their resulting selection of CS2 participants; and a maximum relevance of research actions performed towards the programme’s goals.
  • To finalise and implement the impact assessment strategy and reference framework for the TE (including the selection of and the performance levels of reference aircraft against which the progress in CS2 will be monitored); to finalize the assessment criteria and evaluation schedule for the TE for each technical area. To complete the selection of its key participants; to conduct within the timeframe of the work plan the first TE assessment of CS2 in order for its completion in early 2020.
