The pool of “Regions of Interest” identified

To overcome the misbalance in aviation related research activities in Europe, RADIAN will identify barriers for  international collaboration and subsequently develop and verify solutions and measures to overcome these obstacles on the level of the European regions.
As a first step, regions with low participation in the EU Framework Programmes, however possessing the potential for higher cooperation in joint European projects as well as aviation research intensive regions had to be found. This required an objective approach, relying on high quality data.

The method of how to select the "right" regions was discussed very intensely and elaborately among the consortium members. In several steps the regions got assessed after different criteria. With very high effort aspects like engagement in Framework Programme 7 (FP7) and Horizon 2020 (H2020)economic data and soft factors were taken into account. Every step was enriched by the knowledge and experience of all partners who know the European research arena very well.

The evaluation process research was done on the level of involvement,  activity and potential in AAT research and innovation. All EU Member States, Associated- and Candidate Countries, as well as all Third Countries engaged in FP7 and/or H2020 aviation research were considered. In a multi-stage down-selection process, the pool of regions was gradually decreased while the level of detail applied for the different selection increased. All criteria got selected very carefully to select the regions with the highest potential of finding the way into European joint research.

In RADIAN, we recently identified a pool of “regions of interest”, abbreviated ROI. This acronym fits quite nicely, as for these regions a reasonable return-of-investment on RADIAN activities is being expected. The final result of Work Package 1 is a list of  24 candidate regions with strong focus and interest in aviation - regions which have the potential to achieve added value if they are supported adequately to overcome the  barriers which currently hamper their participation in European aviation research.

Clean Sky workshop: "Member States / Regions and the Synergies with ESIF in Aviation/Aeronautics"

03 July 2017, Brussels, Belgium
Gerhard Pauly, the RADIAN coordinator, and Roland Guraly from the consortium attended the
Clean Sky event in Brussels. The workshop was focusing on regions and states' best practices in
how to enhance cooperation with Clean Sky by allocating structural funds to complementary
activities to Clean Sky financed projects. The event was an excellent opportunity for RADIAN to
establish tighter cooperation with Clean Sky in general and also with direct ones to some of the regions.

RADIAN collaborates with Clean Sky 2 Joint Undertaking

The RADIAN consortium’s meeting with policy officers at Clean Sky JU during Clean Sky 1 Closing Event ‘Europe, Innovation and Aviation – Are we keeping up?’ in Brussels confirmed the importance of applying new methodologies for comprehensive analysis of currently dispersed information about Aeronautics and Air Transport (AAT) research and development funding in Europe. The parties will explore opportunities to consolidate information sources to assess full impacts of EU funding to AAT research. The broader methodologies will expectedly enable to identify problems behind regional imbalances in aviation research involvement across Europe for better policy making.
Clean Sky is the largest European research programme developing innovative, cutting-edge technology aimed at reducing CO2, gas emissions, and noise levels produced by aircraft. Funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme, Clean Sky contributes to strengthening European aero-industry collaboration, global leadership and competitiveness to ensure that aeronautics continues to be one of the Europe’s sectors of excellence.

RADIAN consortium at Clean Sky Forum 2017

Representatives of the RADIAN consortium will attend Clean Sky 1 Closing EventEurope, Innovation and Aviation – Are we keeping up?’ which takes place on 21-22 March 2017 in Brussels.

Clean Sky is the largest European research programme developing innovative, cutting-edge technology aimed at reducing CO2, gas emissions, and noise levels produced by aircraft. Funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme, Clean Sky contributes to strengthening European aero-industry collaboration, global leadership and competitiveness to ensure that aeronautics continues to be one of the Europe’s sectors of excellence.

The goals of RADIAN project are well-aligned with the goals of Clean Sky programme. The RADIAN consortium works to achieve a more integrated European research environment in aeronautics and air transportation (AAT) where all supply chains fully utilise the possibilities of new and emerging innovative companies, especially SMEs to strengthen the competitive European position in the increasingly tight competition for global industrial leadership.

RADIAN will discuss opportunities for concerted actions with Clean Sky, the main AAT project under Horizon2020, and will contribute to debates about the future of EU policies to develop innovative, green technologies to improve the environment.
