Projects from Partners

Partners are private or public organisations that participate in specific activities of the Clean Sky programme over a limited period and according to open and transparent competitive procedures.

Partners have been selected through calls for proposals (CFP launched since the beginning of Clean Sky).

The members of ITDs defined the scope projects (topics) contributing to the objectives of the ITD (sorted per areas). The proposals submitted against topics were evaluated against criteria such as: eligibility, relevance, technical excellence, cost and value for money, timetable, and quality. Applicants with top-ranked proposals were invited to become Partners (more details

This section describes the different projects carried out in GRC by Partners across the level 1 work packages of the ITD GRC: GRC1 to GRC6.
