AMEDEO is a Marie Curie Initial Training Network, bringing together leading academic researchers and key private sector partners with the aim of developing the tools needed by the European aerospace industry to design the next generation of environmentally-friendly aircraft.

The advances will be delivered by bringing together state-of-the-art research with a comprehensive training programme for 13 early stage researchers. The project’s focus will be on developing the use of Multidisciplinary Design Optimisation, a technique which has been identified by the European Commission in its report ‘Flightpath 2050’ as critical for the future sustainability of the European aerospace industry. Through its research and training activities AMEDEO will ensure that there is a new generation of researchers capable of providing the radical innovation needed by the EU’s aerospace industry to improve the energy efficiency of aircraft, while also reducing emissions, timescales to production and costs.
