After 5 years of operation and collaboration the ECATS Network of Excellence (NoE) will now transform itself into a registered Association of European Research Establishments and Universities leading in the field of aeronautics and the environment. The transition from NoE to the Association will take place during 2010 and 2011. This future ECATS Association has the vision to support endeavours to make aviation more sustainable focussing on scientific expertise and exchange of information. ECATS’ Virtual Fuel Centre focusses on alternative fuel characterisation allowing operating a premix burner, measuring flame velocities, expanding kinetic schemes and spray characterisation. ECATS’ Airport Air Quality (AAQ) focus area povides an assessment of this highly interdisciplinary research field, and develops improved characterisation and approximation specifications for aviation particulate matter emissions. ECATS’ third focus area is dealing with global impact of aviation and green flight. Close collaboration is exploited in order to provide updated estimates and synergies with other programmes established. The future ECATS Association provides an efficient framework for collaboration between universities and research establishments and helps making aviation more sustainable.
