The Clean Sky JTI will be issuing 93 calls for proposals in the first half of 2009, in which the various Integrated Technology Demonstrators seek the technical capabilities of additional partners. The work offered ranges from the design of innovative CROR blade and pylon, to providing statistical models for representative weather phenomena. The combined value of these calls is 50 million euros.

The central objective of transport research under FP7 is to develop safer, greener and smarter transport systems for Europe that will benefit citizens, respect the environment, and increase the competitiveness of European industries in the global market.

Why is it important?

While the European transport system has a crucial role in the transportation of people and goods and is essential to Europe’s prosperity, ways must be found to mitigate the negative impacts and consequences of increased mobility in relation to the environment, energy usage, safety and security and public health.

What will be funded?

Emphasis will be given to the following activities:

  • Aeronautics and air transport
    • reduction of emissions, work on engines and alternative fuels,
    • air traffic management, safety aspects of air transport,
    • environmentally efficient aviation
  • Sustainable surface transport - rail, road and waterborne
    • development of clean and efficient engines and power trains,
    • reducing the impact of transport on climate change,
    • inter-modal regional and national transport,
    • clean and safe vehicles,
    • infrastructure construction and maintenance, integrative architectures


The European Commission will fund Transport research by selecting project proposals submitted following the publication of a ‘Call for proposals’. When the calls of the Transport Work Programme are published they will be announced on this page. Read more…


The EU Member States have earmarked a total of € 4.16 billion for funding this theme over the duration of FP7.
