Research Projects

CGC projects will be developed, serviced and implemented horizontally across vertical thematic areas strongly tied to the CGC divisions, which would utilise the results and resources of the competence centres that will collaborate to deliver functional and demonstrable systems.
The individual CGC projects will therefore determine their research and development needs in the competence centres so that the research results flow directly back into a functional CGC system, thereby enabling the technology transfer and facilitating the inter-competence centre collaboration.
The CGC researchers will contribute to the broad divisions of the institute under the supervision of division directors. Similarly, the directors responsible for the horizontal dimension will lead as project directors with their own CGC project staff and utilising the resources from the divisions in a matrix fashion.

energy into a smart recharging and refueling grid that supports trading of sustainable energy (buy and/or sell) with the local
distribution service operators (DSOs); ii) all-inclusive green hydrogen supply- and SAF solutions spanning to the European supply
chain; iii) smart recharging infrastructure providing storage capacity and offering Demand Side flexibility and load management for increased revenues from ancillary markets to support large-scale conversion to e-vehicles, eVTOLs, e-aircrafts and e-boats; iv) highperformance energy management system with advanced sensing data processing, crowd sensing and crowd management and
analytic solutions for self-sufficient monitoring and control of energy use and to efficiently manage sustainability and circular
performance indicators at airport buildings; v) multi-modal transport framework based on smart logistic solutions and electric
Mobility as a Service (eMaaS) platform; vi) inclusive and competitively fair business models that build on real-time shared
information across the value chain to avoid any ?greenwashing? practice; vii) a framework for developing a new Target Operating
Model to facilitate the green transition of airports inclusive of respective procedures, policies, roles and responsibilities, viii) strong dissemination and exploitation framework.

EnScitiZen
(Enabling citizens to act on climate change, for sustainable development and environmental protection through education, citizen science, observation initiatives, and civic engagement)

EnSciZen will address the gap of creating new and innovative forms of civic engagement with ecologically sustainable practices, contributions and knowledge. To create these forms of civic engagement, EnSciZen primarily looks at developing new solutions based in the field of education. Thus, the challenge that EnSciZen takes up is to find innovative ways to expand and strengthen the ability of educational institutions (e.g. schools, training institutions, universities) and education communities (e.g. academic communities, student organisations etc.) to facilitate social change and, specifically, a transition towards a green attitude and behaviour by the general public.
