"The ""Clean Sky "" Joint Technology Initiative aims at realising a quantum leap in the technological capability of Europe to produce aircraft that satisfy environmental needs and are economically viable. The Joint Technology Initiatives will be outside of the mainstream ""calls for proposals "" means of implementation of the work programme. In order to facilitate the early start-up of the JTI and ensure a rapid transition to full operational readiness the Founding Members of the ""Clean Sky "" JTI are applying to the European Commission to benefit from a Coordination and Support Action (CSA). The purpose of this Action is to develop the overall scheme for the implementation of the project. This scheme includes technical, governance, operational, communication and management issues that must be clarified and defined in detail to lay down the basis for future operational readiness. Technical content will be examined and developed to provide an in-depth Work Breakdown Structure with detailed responsibilities and to identify any gaps and overlaps. The Governance Structure of the JU, the legal entity responsible for ""Clean Sky "" activities, will be drawn up in collaboration with the EC lawyer. A scheme with timescales and procedures will be laid down for the implementation of the Call for proposals and Call for tenders. Both internal and external communication processes will be elaborated. The external communication strategy is important for full visibility of Clean Sky activities. This will include developing a Web site, a communication pack, a newsletter, a leaflet and organising a mobilising event about Clean Sky for end 2007. Finally, management team structure will be planned including a description of individual profiles for the future staff."
