The research center, located in Gipuzkoa, is working on a number of European projects that are part of the European Clean Sky program, which is building the aircraft of the future

The high standards of quality and safety required by the aerospace industry present a huge challenge, but it is one that has been successfully met by the research groups at Ceit-IK4 that are involved in European projects of various kinds with companies such as Airbus, Indra and Roll Royce, with research centers such as the applied aviation research centers in Hamburg and Coventry, and with the Universities of Birmingham and Nottingham and the University of the Basque Country (UPV-EHU).

The projects for which Ceit-IK4 has done or is continuing to do research fall within the European Clean Sky initiative and the subsequent Clean Sky 2 call, both of which are working to define and support the pillars of innovation in European aeronautics in the 21st century. Ceit-IK's participation in this initiative has brought more than 3 million euros to the Basque Country through projects ranging from manufacturing the casing for the next generation engine turbine using nickel-based metallic powders and hot isostatic pressing for Rolls Royce to the advanced electrical landing system, more efficient air renewal systems and collaborative processes for human-robot engine assembly.

All these projects demonstrate the high degree of specialization of Ceit-IK4's equipment and facilities: projects that improve the production of parts made from metal powders; the test bench that replicates an airplane's real flight conditions on the ground; the advances made towards the electric airplane through advanced landing gear; air renewal; and sensors that prevent mechanical failures in aircraft.

Ceit-IK4's commitment to aerospace is evidence of the center's high level of research, backed both by European institutions and the sector, which collaborates with high-quality suppliers that are capable of not just meeting but surpassing the quality standards required by aircraft manufacturing.
