As part of Horizon Europe - the next EU Research and Innovation Programme (2021-2027) - the European Commission plans to establish a number of partnerships in several strategic industrial areas, including for air traffic management (ATM). The future Partnership for ‘Integrated ATM‘ will build on the success and the momentum generated by the SESAR Joint Undertaking to deliver the Digital European Sky, making air transport smarter, more sustainable, connected and accessible to all airspace users, including new entrants.
Complementing the European ATM Master Plan 2020 and the High-Level Partnership Proposal, the Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) details the research and innovation roadmaps to achieve the Digital European Sky, matching the ambitions of the ‘European Green Deal’ and the ‘Europe fit for the digital age’ initiative. The priorities outlined in the SRIA to build a digitalised infrastructure will also be critical for a post-COVID recovery, enabling aviation to become more scalable, economically sustainable, environmentally efficient and predictable.
You can submit your feedback on the Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda for the Digital European Sky through a dedicated online survey, which will run from 23 July until 20 August 2020 (midnight).
