ANIMA presented at the European Parliament

March 6, 2018

Brussels, 6 March 2018 – ANIMA project has been presented to policymakers at the European Parliament today. ANIMA stands for Aviation Noise Impact Management through Novel Approaches and is funded by the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme of the European Union. Finnish MEP Merja Kyllönen (GUE/NGL) hosted the breakfast meeting during which over 50 guests gathered to hear the ambitious goals of the aircraft noise-tackling initiative. Among the attendees were members of the research community, representatives of the aviation industry and officials of the European Commission and several public authorities. In 2014, over 2,5 million people were exposed to noise at 45 major European airports. As air traffic is growing, this number might increase by 15% until 2035 (European Aviation Environmental Report, 2016). Aviation noise impacts health and quality of life and thus generates community reaction, affecting the airports’ ability to grow and hinder subsequent economic growth. Non-acoustical factors play a major role in noise annoyance management and therefore it is necessary to shed light on the topic, making it a priority in the policymakers’ agendas. The ANIMA project is a people-oriented research project. It aims at identifying and diffusing best practices to lower the noise annoyance endured by communities around […]

H2020 project kicks off

December 21, 2017

to mitigate the impact of aviation noise Paris -25 October 2017 – ANIMA project has officially started. ANIMA is a project funded by the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme of the European Union which aims to mitigate the impact of aviation noise through novel approaches. On the occasion of the project’s kick-off meeting, all ANIMA partners have gathered in Paris to proceed with the start-up activities. The coordinators of three other related projects, ARTEM, RUMBLE and AERIALIST, joined the meeting in order to strengthen European inter-project cooperation. The project manager of INEA (Innovation & Networks Executive Agency) was also present and contributed to raise awareness on the research policy on transport in H2020. ANIMA’s overall objective is to develop new methodologies, approaches and tools to manage and mitigate the impact of aviation noise, enhancing the capability to respond to the growing traffic demand, also considering 24/7 operations. The project aims to reach this objective via a strategic approach based on three pillars: 1. community engagement as mitigation, 2. improving the quality of life by enriching knowledge on noise-related annoyance and capitalizing knowledge through European coordination. ANIMA is financially supported by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. Horizon 2020 […]
