Zefhir is the result of a 5 years effort by our engineers and its commercial release is the culmination of the technical development adventure and the beginning of its market adoption strategy.
We would have got there on our own eventually but we got there faster thanks to the generous support of the European Commission that recognised the potential in our project.
Fast Track to Innovation is a pilot scheme introduced within Horizon 2020 and conceived as an instrument to speed up the time from idea to market and to increase the participation of industry, thereby stimulating private sector investment in close-to-market innovation.
The DISRUPT project financed in 2016 is a prime example of the successful approach of the Fast Track to Innovation pilot scheme to lead to marketable products thus generating revenues and creating highly skilled jobs.
The Consortium is lead by Curti Costruzioni Meccaniche SpA and it includes top European players in the aeronautical sectors: PBS Velka Bites of the Czech Republic and Junkers Profly GmbH of Germany.
The three parties kindly acknowledge the support of the European Commission.
