Aeronautics ERA-Net as one of the key enablers of the prosperous development of Aeronautics in Europe

Basic Information


"The AirTN ERA-Net was established under FP6 as a network of Member States whose ministries and agencies manage public funded national research activities and programmes in Aeronautics and Air Transport. The results from AirTN in FP6 are prerequisites for the implementation of joint activities to enhance co-operation and coordination of national and regional research programmes. AirTN in FP7 will strengthen this coordination and strive for long lasting co-operation. It will bring added value to the foundation of the European Research Area and the development of a European Research Policy, especially in relation to aeronautics and air transport. The focus will be on the Implementation of Joint Activities and the funding of transnational research. The governing objective of all AirTN activities is to continue strengthening the European Research Area within the framework of the ACARE Strategic Research Agenda."
