The workshop will focus on the following topics:
The workshop will take place in hybrid mode on Monday 4 March 2024. It will be scheduled back-to-back with the Clean Aviation Annual Forum 2024 (CAAF24), taking place on Tuesday 5 and Wednesday 6 March 2024, which will provide an outlook to the future of the Clean Aviation programme and will showcase the achievements of the Clean Sky 2 programme.
The audience will include regional/national representatives of regional/national public authorities developing strategies (e.g. Smart Specialisation Strategies) for research and innovation and managing/implementing funding aligned to such strategies, who are interested in learning more (and potentially to engage) on synergies between European and national/regional programmes, in particular in the area of sustainable aviation research and innovation. In particular, the workshop is organized for all European regions and in particular those that have identified sustainable aviation, and relevant sectors contributing to this, as a key strategic area in the region’s Smart Specialisation Strategies (S3) for the current Operational Programme 2021-2027. The workshop organizers aim also to reach out to representatives (at director level or higher) of beneficiaries of European, national/regional funding programmes (including industry, SMEs, universities, and RTOs) who are interested in supporting an increased coordination in research and innovation between the EU, national and regional levels.
