Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


The European aeronautics industry operates in a global marketplace bringing great benefit not only to its stakeholders but also to the Community at large. If it is to survive and prosper, it will need to address the issues not only at the level of the firm, but also at national and at European levels. Existing European Union mechanisms for research and technological development have brought great benefits and should be continued. In order to address the global challenge facing the aeronautics industry and produce even greater, measurable benefits, further actions should be taken in the three priority areas which have been identified by the Aeronautics Task Force. Steps have been taken in response to these priorities, but more remains to be done. A number of projects already selected following the early calls for tender under specific programmes will contribute towards these priorities. The Commission has recognised that a particular effort needs to be made to strengthen and ensure better coordination between the specific programmes relating to aeronautics. While current efforts will have some positive effect, the objectives identified require that an extra effort be made to achieve a really substantial impact.
