The Clean Sky Joint Undertaking is organising a conference at the Paris Air Show - Conference Centre on synergy between Clean Sky and European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) with the aim of developing close interactions with interested EU Member States and Regions in order to strengthen both their R&I innovation capacity in aeronautics and the leverage effect resulting from synergies between ESIF and the Clean Sky programmes. Many Regional Smart Specializations (RIS3) submitted by the EU MS/regions indicate aeronautics and correlated areas as a priority for ESIF funding. A first Memorandum of Understanding was signed with Midi-Pyrénées Region (France) on 25 February 2015. While keeping the funding processes and rules of each body, the purpose of this conference is to identify and share information regarding the mechanisms for ensuring complementarity and synergy through ESIF in the relevant research and innovation projects in the field of the Clean Sky initiative.
