Clean Sky 2

Clean Sky 2 (CS2) is the most ambitious aeronautical research programme ever launched in Europe. Its mission is to develop breakthrough technologies to significantly increase the environmental performances of airplanes and air transport, resulting in less noisy and more fuel efficient aircraft, hence bringing a key contribution in achieving the Single European Sky environmental objectives.

CS2 will help Europe’s aeronautics sector remain competitive. Europe currently has a world market share of 40% and the global aviation sector is expected to grow by 4-5% per year. But faced with fierce competition Europe needs to develop new technologies to create new market opportunities and new highly specialised jobs. For stakeholders in the EU-13 countries the new, enlarged JTI offers more opportunities to participate in building the best technologies.

The budget of CS2 is €4 billion. The EU contributes €1.8 billion from the Horizon 2020 programme budget. Industrial partners contribute €2.2 billion, €1 billion of which will come through additional activities that are not included in the work plan of the JTI but that support the achievement of its objectives.
