Future Sky Energy Initiative
The core of Future Sky is the cooperation between EREA (www.erea.org) members on their national institutional research programmes. EREA believes institutional co-operation of European research establishments is the best guarantee to ensure technological development to the benefit of European society and industry, beyond the current SESAR and Clean Sky timescales.
7 partners of IMOTHEP are active in Future Sky Energy
EIMG (Engine Industry Management Group, est. 1990)
EIMG (sub-body of the ASD – IMG4) consortium has launched since several years some initiatives to develop future engines in the frame of the European Committee research programmes. It coordinates the views of European aero-engines manufacturers; it also involves Europe’s leading research institutions as well as SMEs in the field of aeronautics providing innovative and sustainable technologies.
Within different project such as DREAM, VITAL, NEWAC, LEMCOTEC, and E-BREAK, EIMG is ensuring the development of innovative technologies (including subsystems) in order to further reduce the fuel burn, emissions and noise.
