Clean Sky

Clean Sky Joint Technology Initiative

The Clean Sky Joint Technology Initiative [JTI] project was created by the European Commission for funding research in Europe to allow the implementation of ambitious and complex activities, including the validation of technologies at a high readiness level.

The air transport industry is paying a lot of attention to growing public concern about the environmental issues of air pollution, noise and climate change. The size and scale of the JTI requires the mobilisation and management of very substantial public and private investment and human resources.  Accordingly Clean Sky will be one of the largest European research projects ever, with a budget estimated at €1.6 billion, equally shared between the European Commission and industry, over the period 2008 - 2013.

This public-private partnership will speed up technological breakthrough developments and shorten the time to market for new solutions tested on Full Scale Demonstrators to significantly improve the impact of the air transport on the environment.

Clean Sky will encourage the participation of smaller companies and SMEs to ensure their full involvement in the programme, therefore offering opportunities to the entire aeronautic supply chain from all EU Member States and Associated countries.
