The ANIMA project was presented at the beginning of November at the Green Aviation Research and Development Network (GARDN) Annual Conference in Ottawa. GARDN is a non-profit organization funded by the Government of Canada and the Canadian aerospace industry.
This year, the GARDN conference was organized in conjunction with the Canadian Aerospace summit, which saw more than 2000 attendees.
Part of the programme, ANIMA was present in the trade show of the Canadian Aerospace Summit, with a booth where participants were able to learn more about the project and read the existing publications.
ANIMA’s presence at international-scale events such as this one promotes the transferability of approaches developed in the project to other countries.
The ANIMA project is a people-oriented research project. It aims at identifying and disseminating best practices to lower the noise annoyance endured by communities around airports. The project also allows to better understand the non-acoustical factors which influence noise annoyance, but also to improve the quality of life of communities surrounding airports.
