The Joint Technology Initiative (JTI) "Clean Sky" is the name of the hitherto largest EU research programme for the advancement of sustainability and competitiveness in European aviation.
With a budget of 1.6 billion euros, the project is one of the largest combined research programmes in Europe. In six research areas technologies will be developed, with the technological target of realizing an integrated technology demonstrator (ITD). At the Farnborough International Air Show 2008, from 14 to 20 of July in Farnborough, Great Britain, Fraunhofer researchers will inform the public about the project (Hall H4, Booth C7).
A European research consortium of 86 industrial and research partners from 16 nations has set itself the target in the Joint Technology Initiative (JTI) "Clean Sky" to reduce the pollution caused by growing air traffic to a minimum or to keep it within acceptable limits. The research and development work over the next seven years will contribute to reducing the CO2 emissions by 50 percent, the NOx emissions by 80 percent and to halve the noise pollution.
Furthermore, the researchers will develop environmentally-friendly methods, processes, procedures and materials for the design, manufacturing, operation and recycling of aircraft. Alongside leading aviation companies, such as Airbus, Alenia, Dassault Aviation, EADS-CASA, Eurocopter, Liebherr-Aerospace, Safran, Agusta Westland, Thales, Saab AB and Rolls Royce, the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft has a seat on the Governing Board of the programme.Contact

A stellar flare 10 times more powerful than anything seen on our sun has burst from an ultracool star almost the same size as Jupiter
A localization phenomenon boosts the accuracy of solving quantum many-body problems with quantum computers which are otherwise challenging for conventional computers. This brings such digital quantum simulation within reach on quantum devices available today.
Quantum computers promise to solve certain computational problems exponentially faster than any classical machine. “A particularly promising application is the...
