Global Coordination of Aviation Noise Research Effort

Global Coordination of Aviation Noise Research Effort

February 5, 2020
ANIMA has also the duty to coordinate with plenty of technology-oriented projects that are addressing the issue of noise at source, i.e. to reduce the noise emitted by aircraft

Noise pollution is a global problem with millions of flights a year and thousands of planes in the air at any one time, and it cannot be solved by one organisation or even country alone. That’s why Global Coordination is a key aspect of our work which will lead to success.

Coordination also means to coordinate with the numerous other projects launched by the European Commission through its H2020 research programme and with other projects driven at national levels. In this regard, ANIMA acts as a kind of EU flagship project for aviation noise, nurturing technology-oriented projects with considerations on health and annoyance and, conversely, enriching its scenarios with new possibilities offered by technology.


  • Enhancing coherence and efficiency of noise research in Europe, ensuring and reinforcing coordination between national, international and EU research activities.
  • Establish and update through a scenario-based approach a common strategic research roadmap for aviation noise reduction, addressing the development of new technologies and methodologies.
  • Coordinate a European wide network of experts and research actors in support of the roadmap process, stimulating the emergence of novel approaches to overcome gaps, ensuring minimal duplication and fragmentation in the course of future research efforts.
  • Explore possibilities, facilitate and establish practical conditions for targeted international collaboration in line with the strategy for EU international cooperation in research and innovation as well as the needs put forward by the strategic roadmap for aviation noise, including aspects related to international regulatory discussions.
