Arc Universities

Electric and hydrogen propulsion, autonomy and airspace management technology are becoming increasingly important drivers of competitiveness in the aviation market.

The UK is already forging a pathway towards zero-carbon aviation, delivering a leadership position for the UK in the evolving global market of ‘green’ aviation. At its heart are three world-class academic partnerships with industry and innovators: the UK Zero Carbon Airport and Aviation Centre, based at Cranfield’s Global Research Airport; the Oxford Thermofluids and Energy Institute; and the National Centre for Propulsion and Power at the Whittle Laboratory, Cambridge.
