ACARE ‘Aerodays’ set for March 2005

High-level personalities from the aeronautics industry will meet researchers and European policy-makers in Brussels on 30 and 31 March 2005. The ‘Aerodays’ event is being organised by ACARE, the ‘Advisory Council for Aeronautics Research in Europe’. On the agenda: the new and expanded edition of ACARE’s Strategic Research Agenda.

ACARE, set up in 2001 by the then EU Research Commissioner Philippe Busquin, formally unveiled its comprehensive Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) in November 2002. It addressed the challenges facing the European aeronautics industry, including ever-increasing air traffic, with its associated increase in noise, emissions, congestion, and delays, as well as heightened security concerns in the wake of 11 September 2001. The SRA set the scene for future aeronautics research, guiding the planning of research under public, private, national and EU programmes, and reinforcing the Commission’s commitment to Aeronautics and Space as one of the seven priority thematic areas under EU’s research Framework Programme for 2002-2006 (FP6).

Now, ACARE is prepared to present a new and expanded version of its SRA, addressing new challenges and including a detailed review of technology needs. The Brussels event will feature current Research Commissioner Janez Potočnik, along with personalities from the Council of Ministers and the European Parliament. Day 2 will include in-depth discussions of SRA content, implications and implementation.
