Czech Republic

MoU in place
RIS3 with priority in aeronautics:

A national complementary call* to Clean Sky 2 JU under the National Operational Programme ‘Aplikace’ was launched by the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Czech Republic on 30th November 2017, as a result of the implementation of the MoU cooperation signed with CS2JU in 2016. The call aimed at supporting RDI projects complementary to Clean Sky 2 and its technical scope as defined in the CS2JU Work Plan and had a total budget of 400 Million CZK (around €15.5 million) from the European Structural and Investment Funds.

Pilot project

An ESIF project awarded the quality certification of “Clean Sky 2 Synergy Label” as complementary to ARGOS CSJU project, in the area of ENGINE ITD.

ARGOS-ESIF Project (Weight-saving design of aerospace composite propellers useful for piston engines): aims at hydromechanical single acting and electromechanical dual acting propellers with the reverse-thrust and feather position of blades functionality, useful for piston engines with and without gearboxes. It’s a complementary project in the area of Engine Integrated Technology Demonstrator (ITD).

Project objective: the development of reliable composite/metal joints of the propeller blade retention section; the combined fatigue life testing and residual strength measurement of the proposed joints; evaluation of the dependence of their residual strength versus number of operation cycles and the applications on piston engines with and without the gearbox.
