Proposal for a Council Regulation setting up the Clean Sky Joint Undertaking (presented by the Commission) {SEC(2007) 773} {SEC(2007) 774} COM(2007) 315 final

Abstract

Joint Technology Initiatives (JTIs) are introduced in the 7th Research Framework Programme (FP7) as a way of creating public-private partnerships in research at European level. JTIs are an expression of the EU's strong commitment to coordinating efforts, so contributing to set the European Research Area and Europe's competitiveness goals.
JTIs arise mainly from the work of European Technology Platforms (ETPs). In few cases, ETPs have achieved such scale and scope that they will require the mobilisation of high public and private investments as well as substantial research resources to implement important elements of their Strategic Research Agendas. JTIs are proposed as an effective means of meeting the needs of these ETPs.
In the Co-operation Specific Programme, JTIs are identified potentially in six areas: hydrogen and fuel cells, aeronautics and air transport, innovative medicines, embedded computing systems, nano-electronics and GMES (global monitoring for environment and security).
The purpose of the proposal is to create a CLEAN SKY Joint Undertaking as a public-private partnership which would promote strong links between different organisations and build-up on European R&D capabilities in the field of aeronautics and air transport.
Projections for air traffic development in Europe show that it will more than double in the next 20 years, in line with global economy requirements alongside growing environmental concerns and a push to curtail emission of noxious gases and noise.
Developing an environmentally friendly air transport system is a priority for European growth that relies and capitalises on the industrial network of the aeronautics sector, where the supply chain is geared to operate in a major high-tech industrial programme in line with Union initiatives such as JET and ITER (fusion) and Galileo (satellite navigation).
