AERONAUTICS - AIRCRAFT- ECODESIGN

DEADLINE: MAY 3rd, 2011.
BENEFICIARIES:
Any legal entities established in  EU Member states or Associated country.

ACTIVITIES:
The programme is arranged around the six following Integrated Technology Demonstrators (ITDs):
  1. Smart Fixed Wing Aircraft,
  2. Green Regional Aircraft,
  3. Green Rotorcraft,
  4. Systems for Green Operation,
  5. Sustainable and Green Engines,
  6. Eco-Design
The calls are published to support activities meeting the needs of the ITDs and in most cases, the RTD work will serve for one of the demonstrators



TOPICS CALLED:
