ENABLEH2 at the Online ICAO Stocktaking Seminar

ENABLEH2, Online ICAO Stocktaking Seminar, 28 April 2020

Dr Bobby Sethi from Cranfield University and coordinator of the EU funded project ENABLEH2 introduced the project at the Online ICAO Stocktaking Seminar on aviation in-sector CO₂ emissions reductions that was held on 28 April 2020. ENABLEH2 featured in the presentation entitled “Reductions from technologies, fuels and operations” by Neil Dickson – Chief, Environmental Standards, ICAO Secretariat.
This online event set the scene for the September event and shared knowledge associated with the main challenges aviation has to face to make progress towards decarbonisation. The face-to-face ICAO Stocktaking Seminar on in-sector CO₂ emissions reductions has been rescheduled to 8-10 September 2020 at ICAO Headquarters in Montreal.

Heathrow Airport Limited - 2nd GA Meeting, 6-7 March 2019

2nd GA Meeting, 6-7 March 2019

Heathrow Airport Limited

The 2nd General Assembly Meeting of the ENABLEH2 Project was hosted by Heathrow Airport Limited (HAL) on the 6th and 7th March 2019. Colleagues from HAL introduced the participants to Heathrow’s Carbon neutral growth roadmap and to Heathrow’s Centre of Excellence for Sustainability. This was followed by the work-package presentations during which partners gave an overview of their work progress over the last 6 months. The Meeting was concluded with break-out sessions which enabled detailed technical and project management discussions which further strengthened synergies and collaboration, both in individual work packages and across the project as a whole. These sessions also provided a roadmap for the upcoming activities in the project.

Cranfield University - Kick-off Meeting, 27 – 28 September 2019

Kick-off Meeting, 27 – 28 September 2018

Cranfield University

The ENABLEH2 kick-off meeting was held at Cranfield University on the 27th and 28th September 2018. Project Coordinator Dr Vishal Sethi opened the meeting by welcoming all the participants, presenting the overall aims of the meeting as well as the overall objectives of the project. During the meeting, the Consortium discussed details of the research and innovation activities, the synergies between different work packages and the activities to be implemented. Dr Marina Kousoulidou, Project Manager of ENABLEH2 at the European Commission, presented the targets and requirements of the European Commission for EU-funded Research and Innovation projects like ENABLEH2. The Meeting concluded with interesting visits of the Cranfield University Aerospace Integration Research Centre (AIRC) and the Combustion experimental facilities being used for ENABLEH2.
