Project teaser

Acronym: GreAT

The European-Chinese Research and Innovation project GreAT seeks to reduce aviation’s impact on climate change across continents.

The consortium investigates new possibilities to manage air traffic in a greener way. Optimised flight trajectories will help to reduce fuel consumption during all flight phases, for instance through optimisation of airspace design and controller support tools.

GreAT also considers increasingly challenging and conflicting factors, such as the constant growth of air traffic, but also more complex items such as the environment, weather, aircraft operations and maintenance.
