Research Infrastructures - Needs, Gaps and Overlaps


RINGO will deliver a holistic identification of research infrastructure needs, gaps and overlaps for the aviation sector in Europe with respect to fulfilment of the goals specified in the strategy document “Flightpath 2050”. In addition to the infrastructures themselves, the operation of infrastructures is analyzed and potential operation and business models for existing and future research infrastructures are derived. The outcome of RINGO will serve as input to the European Strategic Research & Innovation Agenda as well as provide a sound basis for decision making within the strategic planning of the related stakeholders, i.e. EC, Member States, ACARE, Industry, Research Establishments and Academia.
