Anima partakes to the Open Research initiative fostered by the European Commission in H2020. As such, we are giving access to a wide set of public deliverable through the OpenAire platform.
These deliverables are explained below :
Work Package 2 on best practices
D2.1 – Pan-European overview of Existing Knowledge and Implementation of Noise Reduction Strategies
This report presents the work carried out, and the outputs produced for Deliverable 2.1 of ANIMA, in which EU regulations, legal obligations and practical interventions in relation to aircraft noise have been reviewed, focusing on the extent to which policy and practice have enabled effective implementation of ICAO’s Balanced Approach to noise impact mitigation
D2.2 – Noise Impact Mitigation Priorities Report
An Impacts and Balanced Approach Expert Committee (IBAEC) convened on May 18th at London Heathrow Airport to participate in a workshop facilitated by ANIMA researchers from Manchester Metropolitan University. The workshop aim was to introduce the ANIMA research project, review the key findings of Deliverable 2.1, and to gain participant insight as to the veracity of the findings, as well as providing the opportunity to make additional comments and contributions.
D2.3 – Recommendations on noise and health
In this report, the ANIMA consortium begins by providing an outline of the context of a review on the relationship between aircraft noise and health. This is followed by a brief discussion of the approach taken, which includes the aim, guiding principles, and methods applied under them. It does so in a systematic, comprehensible, and – as far as possible – replicable way.
D2.4 – Recommendations on annoyance mitigation and implications for communication and engagement
This deliverable has three main objectives. While deliverable D2.3 deals with aircraft noise-related health impacts in general, here (1) annoyance as an outcome is at the centre stage. Moreover, this deliverable (2) pursues a holistic approach to the emergence, maintenance and, especially, mitigation of aircraft noise annoyance. That is, in addition to acoustic variables, in particular the range of non-acoustical contributors is also examined, as well as the combined effects and interactions of acoustical and non-acoustical variables. Finally, based on the findings, (3) implications and recommendations for noise management strategies are derived and presented. The centrepieces to achieving these objectives are several systematic literature reviews.
