This action is part of the Aviation International Cooperation Flagship called "Safer and Greener Aviation in a Smaller World". Aviation alters the composition of the atmosphere globally, thus can potentially contribute to anthropogenic climate change and ozone depletion.

The proposals may aim at one or more of the following areas:  Advance further the international state-of-the-art, through better scientific understanding of aviation emissions; Propose and evaluate mitigation strategies towards operational improvements; Propose and evaluate mitigation strategies towards greener flight trajectories; Propose and evaluate mitigation strategies based on the use of alternative jet fuel pathways.


The third challenge of Flightpath 2050 is related to environmental protection and the security of energy supply. At the Paris climate conference (COP21), countries agreed to limit climate change to well below 2°C. Without considerable contributions from the aviation sector to global mitigation efforts, this goal cannot be achieved.

Proposals are expected to address feasibility design studies for aircraft energy system with integrated hybrid/electric propulsion and power generation architectures as well as sub-systems enablers in the context of appropriately projected advances in the next twenty-year framework.


Merging physical transport assets like infrastructure or vehicles with the digital layer, through the Internet of Things (IoT) and big data applications opens vast possibilities in terms of the development of new transport services, business/operating models and social innovations.

Proposals should address several or all aspects such as: Identify the main characteristics of demands that digitally based mobility solutions place on the users; Identify the needs and attitudes of all societal strata of transport users; Identify the obstacles to the appropriation of digital mobility by different user groups and possible nudges to facilitate it; And several other aspects


Increasingly strict emission standards apply to shipping around the coastlines of many developed countries. Presently these are mainly focussed on SOx, but in future, reflecting health concerns, increasingly strict limits are likely to address NOx and particulate matter. The principal challenge is to better understand the comprehensive environmental impacts from the wide scale adoption of a range of potential emission reduction solutions together with any secondary effects on the on the marine environment.

To address these challenges, proposals should address several aspects including: Assess the range of emission reduction technologies and designs which may be deployed, consider their cost benefits; Experimentally characterise waste streams from emission control technologies, identifying the substances and quantities involved; Considering several possible scenarios for the wide scale adoption of different emission control technologies; And several more.


The market share of full electric vehicles is still low in many European member states. Several reasons have been identified for this. Charging infrastructure is considered as one of the central reasons when the urban model does not allow for widespread garage availability, or when frequent long range travel is involved.

Proposals will have to address several technical areas including demonstration of the final solutions and their interoperability in multiple cities and TEN-T transnational road links.  


Long-distance transport is a main consumer of energy and contributor to CO2 and air pollutant emissions in Europe, and requires specific attention due to very high demand on efficiency, dependability, reliability and cost. This topic considers heavy-duty trucks and bus-coaches in long-distance operation, and the challenge will be to reduce their energy consumption.

Proposals will have to address all the following technical areas: Sub-systems and component concepts; Concepts for connected and digitalized fleet management, predictive maintenance and operation in relation to electrification; Implementation of required adaptations in VECTO


Climate change, energy security and local air pollution are some of the key questions for the 21st century. Urban areas in developing and emerging countries are major driving factors in growing global energy demand and Greenhouse Gas emissions.

Actions should bring together European, Asian (e.g. China), CELAC (Community of Latin American and Caribbean States) and African research partners, government agencies and urban authorities, private sector and civil society with relevant expertise and competence within the corresponding cooperation framework and foster participatory engagement in urban electrification in order to reduce air pollution and CO2 emissions.


Significant research efforts are addressing driver performance and behaviour in automated driving conditions still requiring the driver to be prepared to assume control (SAE automation level 3 and lower). In highly automated driving conditions (SAE automation level 4) the role of the driver will change dramatically since driver intervention is not required during defined use cases.

Proposals for research and innovation should focus on the design of safe human-machine interfaces for vehicles with highly automated driving functions and the safe and controlled transfer between use cases of different SAE automation levels (between level 4 to/from levels 3 or 2) for all types of drivers.


Shared, connected and cooperative automated vehicles may become a game changer for urban mobility. They can provide seamless door to door mobility of people and freight delivery services, which can lead to healthier, more accessible, greener and more sustainable cities, as long as they are integrated in an effective public transport system.

The proposed actions should include eight different aspects such as: Thorough analysis of new, emerging business/operating models and related technologies for shared, connected and cooperative automated vehicle fleet; Design innovative shared, connected, cooperative and automated vehicle concepts (road vehicles at SAE level 4 and higher) and the associated new business/operating models addressing user and customer needs; and test robustness, reliability and safety of shared highly automated vehicle fleets that are operating in semi-open or open environments focusing on the interaction with other road users
