ILA Berlin, running from 25-29 April 2018, is the most innovative trade event in aerospace. Focusing on future aviation themes including digitalisation, eco-efficiency and disruption, this five-day event brings together all the major players in European aerospace, and Clean Sky wants to be part of this new concept.

For the first time ever, Clean Sky and the European Commission are jointly hosting an exhibition stand at ILA Berlin from 25-29 April 2018, showcasing several pieces of innovative hardware developed through the programme. Come and visit our stand in Hall 2 (stand number 304) to talk to our project officers and learn more about key demonstrators for reducing CO2 emissions and noise such as the BLADE aircraft, new configurations like the RACER helicopter, and lighter, more efficient engines like the UltraFan.

A key event during the week is the Clean Sky conference on Thursday 26 April, focusing on the key contribution of Clean Sky in boosting European Aviation R&I and our cooperation with Member States and Regions. From 10:00 to 12:30, distinguished speakers will discuss the importance of Clean Sky also in view of the post-2020 “Multi-Annual Financial Framework” under preparation and the experience in building synergies with ESIF. Follow Clean Sky on Twitter and LinkedIn for live updates throughout the conference.

Also not to be missed is the third edition of the Clean Sky Academy Award for Best PhD, which will take place directly after this conference at 12:00 on Thursday 26 April. This award distinguishes three young scientists who have recently completed a PhD thesis in the field of aeronautics. Stay tuned on our Twitter and LinkedIn to see who takes the prize!

Finally, don’t miss the panel on the ‘Future of TurboFans’, chaired by Clean Sky’s Project Officer for Engines Jean-François Brouckaert. This talk takes place from 15:30-16:30 on Thursday 26 April, and registration is via the ILA Berlin website.

To learn more about innovation in aeronautics, you can also visit the Future Lab, which focuses on the issues shaping the future of the industry. This dedicated area is located opposite the Clean Sky stand in Hall 2.
