The University of Girona (MAV – Advanced Materials Cluster of Catalonia member) is coordinating the project funded with European funds that paves the way for the construction of more reliable, efficient and lighter airframes
The Clean Sky 2 Joint Undertaking aims to develop technologies that reduce the environmental impact of aviation through cleaner and quieter aircraft, as well as to build and maintain Europe’s competitiveness and mobility in this field. Designing lightweight fuselage parts, where existing materials are combined with other high-performance new ones, is a step forward in achieving these goals, as weight reduction is directly related to the efficiency of an aircraft, by involving a reduction of fuel consumption, energy requirements and CO₂ emission levels.
