    Science & Research

    ESAC is a project partner of the CARE (Clean Aerospace Regions) project. CARE will reinforce the R&D networking already instigated at regional level through research-driven clusters and will increase the competitiveness of these regions in the field of Green Aircraft Transportation by:

    • enhancing more effective investments in R&D at regional level
    • stimulating the setting-up of additional regional research-orientated clusters (mentoring activity)
    • catalyzing synergies and public private partnerships both on finance and research agendas standpoints at the European scale

    The CARE proposal will be performed by a consortium of mature aeronautics research-oriented regional clusters gathering large and small enterprises, research actors and local authorities and two less-mature aeronautics clusters to be mentored.


    International Collaboration

    SAC is a partner of the CARE (Clean Aerospace Regions) project. CARE arose out of the work of nine aviation clusters and a consulting company within the EACP (European Aerospace Cluster Partnership).
