Fostering research excellence
in EU Outermost Regions
The European Commission (EC) has set up ACARE (Advisory Council for Aeronautics Research in Europe) representing the main stakeholders to advise on research activities to be supported by the EC Framework Programmes (FP). ACARE has produced the document Flightpath 2050 setting 23 Goals to be achieved by 2050.
The project PARE (Perspectives for Aeronautical Research in Europe) has for main objective to assess the progress towards the 23 ACARE Goals and where necessary appropriate supporting measures. The PARE Project also addresses related issues like long – range air transport, emerging technologies, international collaboration, attracting young talent and increasing the participation of women in aeronautics.
Aviation is the safest mode of transport and the only one covering long distances in a short time with comfort. The objectives of fast, safe, comfortable and affordable travel for business, tourism or family ties must be combined with low environmental impact as regards noise and emissions.
The growth of air transport can be sustained only if research can ensure continuing affordable air travel respectful of the environment. Those are the aims of the ACARE Goals whose achievement the PARE Project supports.
