Funded under the first HE aeronautic call HORIZON-CL5-2021-D5-01-05
About the project
3.47 Mio€ funding
8 partners from 6 countries
Kick off meeting
MATISSE has kicked off with its 8 Partners from 6 different Countries
MATISSE is a project funded by the European Commission
In 2020, the European New Green Deal set the ambitious goal to achieve climate neutrality in all sectors of its economy, including air transport, by 2050.
MATISSE is a 36-month research project funded by the European Commission under the Horizon Europe programme.
Electrification is the only way to reduce at the same time CO2 and non-CO2 emissions.
MATISSE explores smart multifunctional electrical energy storage for hybrid electric aircraft applications. The EU project aims to demonstrate the smart structural battery technology with a multifunctional structure demonstrator capable of power delivery, power management and safety monitoring, to be installed on Pipistrel Velis Electro.
Delivering smart Structural batteries for the next generation climate neutral aircraft
Time to market
The economic, environmental and social impact of MATISSE
MATISSE has the ambition of gradually bringing this technology to the market, on the hybrid electric commuter and regional aircraft in the next decade (2030/40).
MATISSE will contribute to generating up to 4.000 full-time equivalent highly qualified jobs in the EU; a turnover of 0.8-1.2 billion €/year in the future market of multifunctional structures; its technology will help to save 20+ million tonnes CO2 equivalent emissions per year.
MATISSE is a highly interdisciplinary project
Main fields of expertise
MATISSE is aiming at advancing the SotA in structural batteries in 3 main fields:
Battery material / electrochemical research
Aeronautic structures' research
Partners from 6 Countries
MATISSE relies on a diversified portfolio of competences from a consortium 8 partners:
5 EU member states (Austria, France, Italy, Slovenia and Germany).
