Future Sky Safety has officially taken off in 2015 and it is a joint research programme that focuses on two main streams of activities:
- Coordination of institutional safety research programmes
The national research establishments participating in the programme will coordinate the safety research executed under their national institutional research programmes. The set-up of new institutional programmes will be coordinated, national results will be shared amongst the establishments, the hiring of PhDs will be coordinated, etc.
- Collaborative safety research
Gaps in safety research that remain even after the coordinated effort of the research establishments will be tackled in this second part of the programme where the research establishments will cooperate with universities, industry, SMEs and airlines.
The programme is managed in coordination with EASA, IMG4, SESAR Joint Undertaking and EUROCONTROL .
