Development of airframe technologies aiming at improving aircraft life cycle environmental footprint


""This Strategic Topic (ST) corresponds to technology development activities aiming at improving environmental footprint of aircraft life cycle. The technology areas will cover materials and surface treatments, manufacturing processes, maintenance and repair, as well as end of life processes. The technology development phase will be followed by a ground demonstration phase in which aircraft parts will be produced and tested. The environmental benefit brought by the newly developed technologies will be addressed through Life Cycle Assessment activities. ""
