Call for Proposals

The SE²A-Cluster is subdivided into research areas, so-called Integrated Cluster Areas (ICA) which will be established based on the project proposals submitted.

Research proposals can be submitted by members of the SE²A-cluster. In addition, submissions will be accepted from experienced and distinguished post-doctoral researchers and professors from the institutions participating in the SE²A-Cluster:

  • Technische Universität Braunschweig
  • Hochschule für Bildende Künste Braunschweig
  • Leibniz-Universität Hannover
  • Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt
  • Deutsches Luft- und Raumfahrtzentrum (Standorte Braunschweig und Göttingen)

Proposals are expected in the following research areas:

ICA A    Assessment of the Air Transport System

  • Scenario analysis and multi-criteria evaluation of the air transport system
  • Noise assessment
  • Air traffic and airport management and infrastructure
  • Life-cycle engineering

ICA B    Flight Physics and Vehicle Systems

  • Drag reduction and synergies of integrated propulsion
  • Load control
  • Shell structures and materials
  • Paradigms of structural requirements
  • Design methodology and assessment of aircraft

ICA C    Energy Storage and Conversion

  • Design methodology for aircraft energy supply systems
  • Advanced energy storage
  • Sustainable, low emission energy conversion
  • Electrifying aircraft

The deadline for project proposals is december 16, 2018.

To receive a complete set of documents for the call, please contact the SE²A-office.

All proposals will be reviewed by leading scientists of the cluster and by external reviewers. The review process follows DFG standards for the avoidance of conflict of interests. Based on the reviewers' feedback, project proposals will be selected by the SE²A board for detailled planning. Research areas will then be established by defining connections, dependencies and deliverables as well as ressource plans and time schedules. The research areas and research plans will be coordinated by the board and the scientific advisory council of the cluster and have to be confirmed by the general assembly.
