TULIPS accelerates the implementation of innovative and sustainable technologies to reduce emissions at airports.

17 TULIPS demonstrations

Amsterdam Airport Schiphol will be the testing ground for the 17 demonstrations resulting from the collaboration of the consortium with 29 parties called TULIPS.

The TULIPS consortium

The TULIPS consortium will contribute to the transition to low-carbon mobility and enhance current sustainability actions at airports for the next four years by developing and implementing innovative solutions, supported by the EU with €25 million in funding. The funding is part of the European Green Deal. The collaboration of frontrunning airports, airlines, knowledge institutes and industrial partners in this unique European consortium makes it possible to contribute significantly to sustainable aviation, on top of current contributions and actions planned.

Collaborating at four very different airports, with the input from the broad coalition of partners will allow the impact of the solutions on the European climate targets to become apparent. Successful demonstration of specific actions to accelerate sustainability in different scenarios will showcase these innovations and how they can be implemented throughout Europe. The outcomes of the project are expected to contribute significantly to the decarbonisation of the aviation sector. The relevant knowledge gained will be shared on this website, which will allow the aviation industry and other European airports to apply the TULIPS concepts and technologies through practical roadmaps.
