Welcome to the CAME-GT Web site

CAME-GT is a Thematic Network project supported by the European Commission in the Framework V RTD Programme. The main participants are ALSTOM Power, Rolls Royce plc, MAN GHH BORSIG, DLR, Vrije Universiteit Brussel, GASTEC, Siemens and Ansaldo. Also, to confirm the European Research Area in gas turbine technology, the project now has as partners, Turboinstitut (Slovenia), TUS (Bulgaria), ICEMENERG (Romania) and AGH (Poland).

This Web site provides a resource for the dissemination of the CAME-GT research results and highlights meetings and events related to gas turbine technology. Follow these links to view the project titles listed by cluster or by programme.

The objective of this Thematic Network is to co-ordinate RTD projects in industrial gas turbines, covering fossil fuels and biomass and gas turbines in CHP applications and combined cycles. Comparison with international programmes will prioritise key issues for the future and these will be used to recommend the future direction of RTD programmes in gas turbines and contribute to the development of a gas turbine sector Strategy Plan.

CORDIS, the Community Research and Development Information Service, is a free service provided by the European Commission's Innovation/SMEs programme. CORDIS offers access to a wide range of information on EU research and innovation development activities. For information on other EU funded gas turbine projects click here.

Third International Conference – First Announcement and Call for Papers

The Third CAME-GT Conference on Gas Turbine Technology will take place in Brussels at the Chatelain All Suite Hotel on Thursday 12th October 2006 – Friday 13th October 2006.

The 3rd Conference is being organised by the European Turbine Network (ETN) in conjunction with CAME-GT and under the auspices of the European Commission – Full details and an application form are available on the ETN web site – www.eu-gasturbine.org

A Power Generation Strategy for Europe
One of the outcomes from the Network was the production of a gas turbine strategy document for future gas turbine RTD in Europe. Entitled a 'A Power Generation Strategy for Europe' it was written by Peter D. Holmes on behalf of the partners of the Network..

Open consultation for the preparation of FP7

As part of its development of the Work Programme for Framework 7, the European Commission is consulting interested parties for their input. As part of this process a letter was sent by Mr Perez Sainz, Head of the Energy Unit of the RTD Directorate at the Commission to David Pollard, Co-ordinator of CAME-GT to obtain a response from the gas turbine technology sector in Europe. The letter from Mr Perez Sainz can be seen here. The deadline for submissions was 31/12/04.

The response from Dr Pollard was based on the Strategy Report prepared by CAME-GT as part of the Contract and drawn from the contributions of participants at the Workshops and Conferences. The response can be seen here.
