The aim of the workshop was to provide practical information on the overall functioning of this European initiative to support transnational cooperative R&D on automotive sector (Clean Sky 2), in particular the 6th call for proposals.

Clean Sky is the largest European research programme developing innovative, cutting-edge technology aimed at reducing CO2, gas emissions and noise levels produced by aircraft. Funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme, Clean Sky contributes to strengthening European aero-industry collaboration, global leadership and competitiveness.  This 6th Clean Sky call for proposals is the biggest Call ever launched by Clean Sky 2: 74 topics with a funding of 68.8M€. The deadline is 21 June 2017.

In this Workshop, CIDAUT Foundation exposed its experience in Clean sky programme. Inside the aeronautics sector, CIDAUT Foundation has a long tradition working for leading companies in programmes for the development of components and structures for commercial and military airplanes, focusing on those projects that involve the introduction of new materials or processing technologies. Cidaut Foundation´s offer moves around three concepts: Development Engineering, Advanced Engineering, and Prototyping and Manufacturing.


During the workshop, CIDAUT Foundation deepened its experience in some of the most representative projects, which this technological center has carried about, both on its own and in combination with other partners. In particular, the Cidaut’s representative addressed on those projects financed under the Clean Sky programme:

  • PLIT Project. Development of advanced Liquid Infusion Technology for regional wing panels structure: numerical simulation of the process and validation through an innovative test bench.
  • NEMESIS Project. New trends and market survey for the end of the life of aircrafts. Eco design guideline.
  • REMART Project. Recycling of metallic materials from rotocraft transmissions.
  • ACID Project. Advanced composite integrated skin panel structural testing.
  • Project. Development of an innovative welding process for the rapid assembly of thermoplastic brackets to thermoset-matrix composite structures.
  • ACCUBLADE Project. Low cost design approach through simulations and manufacture of new mould concepts for very high tolerance composite components.
  • ALMAGIC Project. Aluminium and Magnesium Alloys Green Innovative Coatings.
