The Cluster of Excellence SE²A - EXC 2163 is an interdisciplinary research center with the purpose of investigating technologies for a sustainable and eco-friendly air transport system. Scientists from aerospace, electrical, energy and chemical engineering are working on the reduction of emissions and noise, as well as recycling and life-cycle concepts for airframes and improvements in air traffic management. Technische Universität Braunschweig, the German Aerospace Center (DLR), Leibniz University Hannover (LUH), the Braunschweig University of Art (HBK) and the National Metrology Institute of Germany (PTB) have joined forces in this extraordinary scientific untertaking.
SE²A Summer School for doctoral researchers 2023
After the Kickoff-Meeting for the new SE²A doctoral researchers took place this summer, we are happy that the SE²A Summer School offered the opportunity for networking and exchange, and to work on the structure of the own scientific questions in small groups.
“There is no silver bullet that will save the climate”
Prof. Jens Friedrichs on research into sustainable aviation in the SE2A cluster. The Cluster of Excellence “Sustainable and Energy Efficient Aviation Systems – SE2A” aims to lay the foundations for a transformation in the air transport system to significantly reduce emissions.
