(Contract No. ENKS-CT-2000-20062)

The objective of this Thematic Network (TM) is to co-ordinate RTD projects in industrial gas turbines, including projects from FPIV and FPV covering fossil fuels and biomass and gas turbines in CHP applications and combined cycles. Technology is divided into four clusters, turbomachinery, combustion, materials and systems. Collaboration within the Network will give added value to project partners. Comparison with international programmes will help prioritise key issues for the future and these will be used to recommend the future direction of RTD programmes and contribute to the development of a gas turbine sector Strategy Plan.

The TM will operate through cluster workshops and dissemination will be through biennial conferences. Implications of the RTD programme for training will be considered.

The partnership represents gas turbine manufacturers across Europe, together with a research establishment, a university and a gas supply company.

Partnerships who submit successful proposals to this call of the Energy programme suitable for inclusion in this TM will be invited to join.
