In the framework of the Horizon 2020 Programme, the consortium of ANIMA project (Aviation Noise Impact Management through Novel Approaches) will organise a workshop on the topic of airport noise management: Transparent noise management and community engagement in Ljubljana airport area. The event will be held on Thursday, December 12, 2019 between 9:00 and 12:40, at the Municipality of Kranj, Slovenski trg 1, Kranj. The event will be followed by a closing networking lunch. You can access a draft agenda here. Registration is now open. Secure your place, REGISTER HERE! Airports are a symbol of inter-regional and global connectivity. However, an airport may affect the quality of life of residents. Airport noise has an impact on local communities, hence the aviation sector must consistently address the concerns of residents, given their increasing influence on planning and environmental decisions at national and local level. The ANIMA project is a people-oriented research project which actively seeks to engage with affected local communities, to listen to their needs and provide solutions. It has been estimated that one third of annoyance reactions can be explained by non-acoustic features due to the personal, social and situate factors (for instance attitude towards the noise source, etc.). ANIMA project brings […]
The ANIMA project is delighted to announce that a new publication on land use planning is available! The publication is based on the land use planning workshop which was held in Brussels, on 18 February 2020. The 44 pages report includes insights on land use planning from 17 speakers, explains the views of European Institutions, and it presents the case studies of 3 airports. ‘In the pages of this publication you will gain further understanding about the work that the ANIMA project is doing in the field of noise mitigation through novel approaches, and you will learn about the different pieces of the puzzle that need to be put together in order to effectively respond to the needs of citizens and aviation actors alike,’ – ARC Secretary General Marius Nicolescu.

The latest ANIMA project meeting in Rome (23-27 September) saw partners working on global coordination of aviation noise research together with experts from around Europe, as well as on the refinement of several noise management tools for both local communities and aviation actors. Partners are working on making the project results available in a user-friendly and comprehensive format. To find out more about the latest ANIMA results and what is planned next, click here. In its efforts to enhance coherence and efficiency of aviation noise research in Europe, ANIMA project hosts every year an Aviation Noise Research Network Meeting. This event gathers experts from around the world and it is an opportunity to showcase national, European and international research efforts streamlined within the European Research Roadmap on Aviation noise.

In conjunction with the ANIMA meetings, the 23rd workshop of the Aeroacoustics Specialists Committee of the CEAS took place. This year, the workshop focused on innovative active and passive materials for the reduction of noise in aeroacoustics applications. The primary goal of the workshop was to encourage the discussion and the cooperation of the research community on this key topic, aiming at the identification of breakthrough concepts to achieve the substantial noise reduction required to guarantee the sustainable development of the aeronautical transportation system. Once collected, the presentations from the workshop will be made available on the ANIMA website.
