Enabler
Enabler: 
To mitigate aircraft and airport noise
Cluster of enablers: 
Improving the airport towards the future through a global approach The airport is a crucial infrastructure enabling the delivery of an air transport service as expected by society in 2050. The main local environmental impacts of air transport operations regard noise, natural resources and local air quality, which can affect health of people and eco systems. Mitigating these impacts is crucial to get acceptance of airports by citizens. The challenge will be to make the numerous stakeholders to work together towards solutions
Capability
Capability: 
Solutions for management of Noise Impact (MNI)
Sub capability: 
Attitudinal Research
R&I needs: 
- Pan european assessment - Understanding of non acoustic factors - Trends in acceptability (vs population segments) - Harmonized assessment protocols / questionnaires / ….
Achievements
2020: 
Thanks to harmonized assessment methodologies, a pan-European assessment has been performed to fully understand non-acoustical factors and to determine trends in the noise acceptability according to the different population segments. Combined with the efforts aimed at Annoyance modelling, this provides an extended set of tools for understanding and managing noise impact.
2035: 
Thanks to harmonized assessment methodologies, a pan-European assessment has been performed to fully understand non-acoustical factors and to determine trends in the noise acceptability according to the different population segments. Combined with the efforts aimed at Annoyance modelling, this provides an extended set of tools for understanding and managing noise impact.
Key Performance Indicator: 
No people impacted outside airport boundaries + TBD % improvement on LUP Implementation Progress Indicator
