Objective

Forecasts show continuing annual growth of 3-4 % for air transport to meet the needs of a modern society. Despite great progress in the efficiency of aircraft and reductions in aero-engines emissions, further R&D is necessary to safeguard the environmental sustainability of the whole air transport system for future generations. The Vision 2020 for Aeronautics and the Strategic Research Agenda of ACARE point out the environment related aims as reduction by 50 % of CO2 and of NOx by 80% by the year 2020 referred to technology being available for implementation at that time. But minor emissions, soot and particulates have to be reduced as well. Developing the necessary knowledge base and making it available to the stakeholders in production and operation is essential for the future European air transportation industry in its global competition. For this reason, AERONET III is proposed as a platform where all the stakeholder communities can exchange information and discuss views and experiences gathered in different EC projects and national programmes. The intention is to identify gaps of knowledge, support the policy and regulatory process and to strengthen the body of European expertise. Through AERONET III with its 22 members from industry, SMEs, national research centres, and universities from nine European countries the latest knowledge will be shared on aircraft and engine technology, operations, air transport, airports, emissions inventories and co-ordinated with the atmospheric sciences and policy and regulations activities. Joint actions will be initiated and performed such as workshops, studies, and reports, the results being made available to the public through electronic and print media. The network will be organised by a Co-ordination and Management Team from four European aeronautical research centres under the project co-ordinator DLR and guided by a high-level Steering Group representing all included interest groups.
