The aviation and air transport industries are important contributors to the European Union’s economic prosperity, and the demand for air transport continues to grow worldwide. However, as well as positive impacts, this also brings challenges, including that of noise pollution.
That is why seeking solutions to balance the benefits of enhanced global connectivity with the needs of people living in the vicinities of airports, is of utmost importance. Achieving a reduction in aviation noise will help to improve the quality of life of citizens, and mitigate the impact on local communities – not least given the growth in air traffic and expanding urbanisation around airports.
This brochure presents a comprehensive overview of projects managed by CINEA and funded under Horizon 2020 – the EU's R&I programme (2014-2020) – that develop, test and exploit innovative solutions towards quieter and more sustainable aviation.
