SMART FIXED WING AIRCRAFT

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
