The ScenAIR2050 project aims to provide a multi-criteria decision support for the evaluation and optimisation of technologies developed within the cluster for an energy-efficient air transport system. As part of the SE2A excellence cluster, the team addresses the interaction of several subcomponents of aviation in a medium to long-term future (2050).
The methodology of the project is based on a combination of Futures Studies and Design Research. This involves generating scenarios that in Futures Studies are tools to offer alternative concepts of future developments. In order to lead a system into the direction of change, they help to leave familiar trajectories and find impulses for innovation. The alternatives explore possible, probable and preferred future scenarios as well as (un)desirable futures. They offer a foundation to be discussed as well as further developed with the cluster partners.
