Europe’s aerospace technology program Clean Aviation has approved €152 million in EU funding for eight new projects that target breakthrough technologies for commercial aviation. If all public and private investments are included, the latest round totals €380 million.

The eight projects that are part of the Clean Aviation Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) cover three topics. In total €86 million of EU funding is for the development of hydrogen-powered aircraft. Included is Trophy, which stands for Technological Research on Propulsion by Hydrogen and is led by Safran. Airbus leads the FAM project, which is an acronym for Fuel Cell Propulsion System for Aircraft Megawatt Engines. MTU Aero Engines is behind Herops or Hydrogen-Electric Zero Emission Propulsion System.
