The European Virtual Institute for Gas Turbine Instrumentation (EVI-GTI) arose through the European Union’s Competitive and Sustainable Growth (GROWTH) programme in 2002.

A definition of a ‘Virtual Institute’ can be found on the EU Cordis GROWTH web pages and is: “A network that links geographically dispersed complementary research and industrial capabilities with the potential to become a legal and self-supporting entity. The difference between Virtual Institutes and networks of other types is that a Virtual Institute needs to demonstrate the capability to become self-supporting”.

The idea behind the European Virtual Institute for Gas Turbine Instrumentation is to offer and maintain a platform for turbomachinery OEMs, vendors of sensors and instrumentation and academia.


EVI-GTI has more Wiki pages for Workgroups on:


The association organizes and provides workshops and conferences, forms multilateral or bilateral consortia and workgroups e.g. for instrumentation standardization, Blade Tip Timing (BTT), Telemetry etc.

Recent EU projects that have been generated, submitted and successfully completed within the European Virtual Institute for Gas Turbine Instrumentation are HEATTOP and STARGATE.


European conferences of the European Virtual Institute for Gas Turbine Instrumentation (short: EVI-GTI International Conferences) are organized bi-annually and alternating with Joint Conferences together with the Propulsion Instrumentation Working Group (PIWG) which are being held alternatingly in the U.S. or in the EU every two years.


Together with PIWG, the European Virtual Institute for Gas Turbine Instrumentation (short: EVI-GTI International Conferences) has developed and continuously updated the Joint PIWG & EVI-GTI Instrumentation Lap Gap Matrix which sorts technologies for sensors, probes and instrumentation into several categories and shows which technologies are currently satisfactory (green label), which are not available but can be worked around (yellow label) and which are still not available today and thus prevent further development of gas turbine engines to higher efficiency (red label).
