ANIMA is a large consortium gathering twenty-two (22) partners throughout Europe: Airports, Aviation Research Centres, Universities, SMEs and NGOs from eleven (11) countries. The project is skyrocketed by an enthusiastic team of nearly seventy (70) committed experts in various disciplines such as acoustics, numerical simulation, psychology and sociology, land-use planning, aviation operational management or communication. We are indeed strongly convinced that the multifactorial nature of noise-assigned annoyance can only be dealt with a multidisciplinary team.
This general approach is the one fostered by Future Sky, the research initiative to which ANIMA partakes. Future Sky has the ambition to address the major challenges that may imperil the aviation transport within the timespan 2035-2050: Security, Noise, Energy and Air Transport integration. Future Sky has been launched by the association of European Research Establishments in Aeronautics (EREA) though it is widely open to other stakeholders.
