Seventh Framework Programme FP7


MAAXIMUS (More Affordable Aircraft through eXtended, Integrated and Mature nUmerical Sizing) aims at achieving the fast development and right-first time validation of a highly-optimised composite fuselage thanks to a coordinated effort between virtual structure development and composite technology.


The Consortium is made up of 54 partners. It gathers the key players in the aircraft industry, R & T Centres, universities and software providers.


The project budget is 67M€ and the project duration is 8 years (2008-2015). It is funded by the European Commission through FP7 work grant number 213371 and led by AIRBUS.
