Abstract Aerochina 1 & 2 have been networking projects co-funded by FP7 and AVI (China) and coordinated by CIMNE. Many of the Grain partners have participated in them. This colavorative projects gathered experts of the two Europe (13) and China (17) sides to foster cooperation and debate future trends in the field of integrated multi physics modeling, computer simulations and code validation, experimental testing and design methods for the solution of multi physics problems of interest to the aeronautic sector. The outcomes of these two projects provided specific and mature RTD activities and teams for the FP EU-China coordinated calls. The main objectives of GRAIN are to identify and assess the future developement of large scale methodes and tools needed for greener technology reaching the vision 2020 environmental goals. Grain will prepare the R & D developement and exploitation with new large scale simulation tools used on distributed parallel environements to deeper understand and minimize the efects of aircraft engine design on climate and noise impact. High performance and innovative metodologies and algorithms must be design to take full-benefit of high-performance computers infra structures existing or quite soon avaliable in EU and China. The participant institutions will focus on future collaborative applied research concerning modelling, experiments, simulations, control and optimization for greener aircraft and engines including: Emissions, drags and noise reduction and green materials with and emphasis on multidiscipline approaches for environmentaly friencly aircraft. These collaborations will be dedicated to 3D and these configurations will imply the use of high-performace computing facilities that are now avliable and upcoming in both Europe and China.New developements will be investigated concerning innovative metodologies on robustness and uncertainty for greener aircraft applications.
