The European Commission has published its 'Aeronautics and air transport - RTD - High speed' call for proposals. The document is part of the latest set of calls published under the EU's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). Aiming to develop a coherent research programme on Civil High Speed Aircraft, the call foresees coordination with Australia, Japan, the Russian Federation and possibly other third party countries. One project shall receive EUR 5 million funding from the European Commission, while two complementary projects will be funded by non-EU partners. Successful applicants will have to perform fly testing of hypersonic aircrafts complying with EU sustainability targets. The tests are expected to help validate concepts such as integrated aerodynamic design of vehicles, propulsion systems, aero-propulsive balance, sonic-boom reduction, high temperature materials and structures, etc.To see the official call announcement, please consult: Participant Portal To see partnership requests for this call, please consult: CORDIS Partners Service
