Making aviation environmentally sustainable

Date: 13-15 October 2020, online

Building upon the success of the 1st ECATS Conference (Berlin 2013) and 2nd ECATS Conference (Athens 2016) this scientific conference ECATS 2020 gave the opportunity to present state-of-the art research, to review recent achievements and at the same time provided a strategic perspective on future directions in environmentally sustainable aviation. The conference programme presents research in seven key areas of multi-disciplinary expertise allowing in-depth discussions and poster presentations.

  • Alternative fuels for aviation
  • Propulsion Integration
  • Airport Air Quality
  • Aviation climate impact and mitigation concepts
  • Green flight
  • Future materials for aircraft
  • Cryogenic fuels / electrofuels
  • Early career researchers (NFFP/SARC)

Extended abstracts of all presentations are included in the conference proceedings (Book of Abstracts), which is available online (link below). After the event, selected contributions are invited to submit a paper for peer-review to a Special Issue in Aerospace. Presentations of the conference are available (link below).
