Did you miss this meeting? A similar conference will be held at the end of the project (~August 2015).

The FP7 project SAFUEL (The Safer Fuel System) is organising a public forum to present and discuss challenges and innovative solutions for future aircraft fuel systems. The event is hosted by SAFUEL partner Instituto Superior Técnico (IST) in Lisbon, Portugal on the 15th May 2014. Venue is the IST congress centre in central Lisbon.
Speakers from both industry and academics will present the latest progress of the research performed by the SAFUEL partners, in the domains of optical gauging, oxygen sensing, water detection, icing and innovations for future fuel tank technologies.


Invited speakers are:

  • Steve Moss, Senior Inspector (Engineering), Air Accidents Investigation Branch, “Looking for ice”.
  • Franck Hervy, Centre d'Essai des Propulseurs (CEPr), France: “An understanding of icing phenomena in fuel system through an experimental approach”
