Gemini Centre Green Aviation

A deep transformation of the aviation industry towards zero-emission technologies is required by the Paris Agreement. Electric propulsion and hydrogen as fuel are, among others, alternatives for sustainable aviation. Disruptive technologies are required to achieve market readiness. For this purpose, interdisciplinary research and development are required.

The Green Aviation Gemini centre is a collaboration hub in the following areas:

  1. Strategic interdisciplinary cooperation among the centre partners towards zero-emission aviation;
  2. Organization of research-oriented events, such as workshops, lectures, promote conferences within the network, and coordinate the participation in public events for increased awareness;
  3. Coordination of the establishment of ground-breaking laboratory infrastructure, and enable increased sharing of existing laboratories;
  4. Alignment and technical coordination of the partners for the establishment of excellent research centres;
  5. Internationalization through coordination of the involvement of the centre partners in the

European partnership Clean Aviation Joint Undertaking, in which NTNU and SINTEF are partners.

The centre also focuses on education and aims to lay the foundation for future education activities within sustainable aviation.
