Collaboration that drives global travel

Start of main content

Institutional support programmes and proposals that promote public-private collaboration are of vital importance in order to develop the strategic initiatives needed to face the aeronautic industry challenges.

ITP Aero takes part in various research and innovation projects aimed at developing the technological foundations of the future of aviation. Most of these projects are led by ITP Aero, which provides a leverage effect on the industrial technology network, through the cooperation of companies and technology centres in the sector.

Horizon 2020

Horizon 2020 is the largest research and innovation programme of the European Union, in which ITP Aero plays a key role in different initiatives.

Clean Sky 2

Clean Sky 2 is a European research programme aimed at developing cutting-edge technology to reduce CO2, gas emissions and aircraft noise levels.

In this programme, ITP Aero is a main partner in the development and manufacture of the intermediate pressure turbine and rear structure of the Rolls-Royce UltraFan® engine.
