European Aviation Research Policy in support to EU policies and initiatives

Type d'action : HORIZON Research and Innovation Actions
Nombre d'étapes : Single stage
Date d'ouverture : 02 décembre 2021
Date de clôture : 26 avril 2022 17:00
Budget : €5 000 000
Call : Clean and competitive solutions for all transport modes
Call Identifier : HORIZON-CL5-2022-D5-01
Description :


Project results are expected to contribute to one of the following expected outcomes:

  • Deliver at mid-term of Horizon Europe an update of European aviation R&I roadmap, while ensuring the alignment with the EU regulatory framework.
  • Deliver a coherent framework and toolbox for technology and policy assessment of the impact of European aviation research – with emphasis to GHG emissions, local air-quality and noise. Ensure coordination with EPCA, IATM, HFC, ACARE and ASD, taking into consideration the work performed in the CS2 Technology Evaluator and the envisioned Clean Aviation Impact Monitor in its environmental, scientific, societal and economic dimensions.
  • Support EU Member States/Associated Countries towards a coherent update of ICAO standards that will prevent backsliding.
  • Connect better European aviation R&I with education and skills and communicate the European aviation R&I to citizens and stakeholders.
  • Strengthen ERA in Aviation R&I, assess the R&I needs of European SMEs and promote aeronautics/aerospace spin-offs in all aspects of life.
  • Strengthen the synergies between all aviation-relevant R&I activities in Horizon Europe.


In 2021, the European R&I will operate in a new European and global political context, with a new EU budget, new policy priorities, and a new R&I programme. As the Commission moves away from program implementation, while works much closer with Member States, a new European aviation research policy framework is necessary. This aviation WP is a representative example that aims towards EU policies and priorities (European Green Deal and new European industrial policy).

The European aviation research policy aims to contribute with science-based informed decisions that will bridge the gap between R&I, regulatory framework and economic investments (with emphasis on climate neutrality by 2050 and European competitiveness). The European aviation research policy also aims to connect better European aviation R&I with education and skills as well as communicate the European aviation R&I to citizens and stakeholders.
