NVvL CleanSky mini-symposium on March 13, 2012

The NVvL will organise this half-day (afternoon) symposium on the NL(R) contribution to the European CleanSky project at NLR (Anthony Fokkerweg 2 in Amsterdam).

Clean Sky is the most ambitious aeronautical research programme ever launched in Europe. Its mission is to develop breakthrough technologies to significantly increase the environmental performances of airplanes and air transport, resulting in less noisy and more fuel efficient aircraft, hence bringing a key contribution in achieving the Single European Sky environmental objectives.

The Clean Sky JTI (Joint Technology Initiative) was born in 2008 and represents a unique Public-Private Partnership between the European Commission and the industry. It is managed by the Clean Sky Joint Undertaking (CSJU) until 31 December 2017.

The CSJU will deliver demonstrators in all segments of civil air transport, grouped into six technological areas called 'Integrated Technology Demonstrators' (ITD). A simulation network called the Technology Evaluator assesses the performance of the technologies thus developed.

In 5 of above areas Netherlands SME's, industry, NLR as Research Establishment and universities contribute to achieve the challenging goals set for Clean Sky.

Details of the symposium programme can be found below. Eric Dautriat, Clean Sky executive director, will deliver an introductionary presentation.
