Title: INEGI's application for associate member of the Green Regional Aircraft (GRA) platform
Issue Date: 2006
Abstract: Aeronautics and Space are entering a new age - the age of sustainable growth characterizedby the need of more affordable, cleaner, quieter, safer air travel and space exploration. Newresearch and development will be essential in responding to this challenge. INEGIInstituteof Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Management proposes to become an AssociateMember of the Green Regional Aircraft (GRA) Platform of the Clean Sky Aeronautics & AirTransport JTI in the 7th Framework Programme of the European Commission.The mission consists of developing fundamental engineering science and associatedtechnologies with application to air and space vehicles, associated systems and components.The work programme is planned in accordance with the goal of strengthening and integratingthe GRA Platform initiative and to meet the societys needs for more efficient, safer andenvironmentally friendly air travel and space exploration.This proposal gathers the expertise of more than 25 PhD senior researchers in the areas ofMechanical Engineering, Aeronautics and Space that have been developing a continuedactivity of research and development in line with the National and European priority areas ofaction, supporting industrial partners, regulatory entities, development planning, expertconsulting and others, adding in this form to the improvement of technological development,the persecution of the national objectives for policies in science and technology and for amore visible and active involvement in international activities. The matrix of competences ofINEGI with respect to the GRA Platform needs, the mission and objectives of the proposedactivity of the Institute are described in the following sections.
