Expected Impact

SUNJET II's expected impact is to contribute to deepening and widening cooperation with Japan and maintaining a common research and innovation roadmap. Actions could assess their impact by estimating the volume / funding of research and innovation actions which could be undertaken in cooperation between EU and Japan.

Building on the lessons learnt from SUNJET project, SUNJET II will produce consistent roadmaps and concrete proposals, mutually agreed with the Japan partners, to be the subject of candidate EU-Japan cooperative proposals (e.g. Joint Calls). At the same time, a communication platform that will continue to be operational even after the end of the project will be created. In general, guidance and also substance to future EU-Japan cooperation on aviation will be provided.

Of course the EU framework programs are a facilitator to implement a part of such future SUNJET proposed roadmaps and the follow-on EU-Japan cooperative actions. But in addition, the cooperation is likely to take the form of more sustainable coordinated actions, supported by future EU-Japan reciprocal agreements, possibly up to the setup of complementary EU-Japan research actions in selected domains, to be the subject for instance of co-funded EU-Japan R&T road maps and programs.

Summarizing, SUNJET II is expected to open new application domains for future aeronautics EU-Japan cooperation agreements, aiming at EU-Japan compatibility, better interfacing and paving the road for common regulations, rules and procedures as well as the use of interfaced or common subsystems, equipment and tools. In addition a boost will be given to some future joint ventures aiming at the future development of new ambitious products, better adapted to future market needs.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 640480
