Webinars of H2020 PARE project

October 26th, 2020

PARE - Perspectives for Aeronautical Research in Europe, is a project funded by the Horizon 2020 programme, lasting from Oct. 2017 to Dec. 2020, aimed at triggering strong collaboration between various European stakeholders to support the achievement of the Flightpath 2050 goals. In particular, the assessment of the rate of progress relative to these goals and respective provision of recommendations, focusing on significant issues which include long-distance travelling, the participation of women in aerospace and educating and attracting young talents has been analysed.

Along its 3 years of implementation, PARE has published yearly reports on the perspectives for aeronautical research in Europe, covering the progress of the 23 Flightpath 2050 goals (and related issues), and making the recommendations appropriate to the conclusions reached.

During the second half of the H2020 project PARE ("Perspectives for Aerospace Research in Europe the following major events have occurred that have added new content to the expected analysis:

  1. the approval of the "New Green Deal" of the European Union;
  2. the COVID-19 pandemic and the consequent biggest crisis in the history of aviation.
  3. These aspects are dealt with in three chapters of the third and final report and will be discussed within a series of live webinars.

    The first webinar is on Sustainable aviation biofuels and will take place on Friday, Nov. 6th h. 15:00 CEST.

    The webinar will deal with several aspects concerning Sustainable aviation biofuels (SAF): the routes for acceptability, the chemical properties of the different kind of fuels for green deal, as well as the environmental, economic and ethical implications associated to the use of SAF. The life cycle assessment methodology applied to SAF will be also introduced. After the presentations, there will be a time slot open to the discussion.

    In the attached flyer the program of the webinar is available, as well as information related to the registration.

    The second webinar will be dedicated to "Decarbonization of Aviation" in response to the EC New Green Deal and the third to "The effects of Covid-19 on Aviation". The proposed dates will be the second half of November and early December.
