ITP Aero hosts Clean Sky 2 in Madrid


ITP Aero is hosting the annual Integrated Technology Demonstrators (ITD) meeting, Clean Sky 2 programme's engine technology area, from the 5th to the 8th of June in Madrid. Clean Sky 2 is the largest European aeronautical research programme aimed at reducing gas and CO2 emissions, as well as cutting aircraft noise levels, with a budget of 4,000 million euros until 2020.

54 representatives from leading companies across the aeronautical sector and their partners will show the programme's executive team and independent evaluators the progress achieved during the year, who will assess the results and propose improvements for next year.

ITP Aero, as a core partner of Clean Sky 2, will present the outcomes of the aerodynamic tests carried out on the intermediate pressure turbine of the Rolls-Royce UltraFan® engine, which have been performed in collaboration with the Aeronautical Technology Centre (CTA) located in Biscay (Spain).
