Call for Expression of Ideas : Clean Aviation
Apply to the European Commission’s expression of interest call on Clean Aviation
The Research and Innovation Directorate General is looking for innovative approaches to define (together with private stakeholders) an ambitious technological roadmap, to identify the most effective paths capable of achieving the desired environmental impact and to co-design the program of the proposal Clean Aviation Joint Undertaking, prior to its establishment, including from sectors outside of aviation.
This Call for Expressions of Ideas/Potential Members (CEI) relates to the preparation of the potential future partnership that can provide transformative ideas and concepts thus contributing to the European Green Deal goals and to express their intention to co-invest in the programme along with its major demonstrator platforms in order to increase the proposed Clean Aviation Joint Undertaking impact. It is also addressed to technology suppliers and start-ups who can present topics that cover or complement the current content in the proposed SRIA, assuming they are in line with the European Green Deal and/or the SRIA high-level objectives. The European Commission is particularly interested in receiving ideas that exploit synergies with actors from sectors outside of traditional aviation, such as experts in full- and/or hybrid-electric power plants, hydrogen propulsion and so on.
Applicants have until the 30th of November 2020 to submit their proposals.
To submit proposals, go to Call for Expression of Ideas.
