Centro Italiano Ricerche Aerospaziali

CIRA is a non-profit shareholding consortium created in 1984 to manage PRORA, the Italian Aerospace Research Program, and uphold Italy’s leadership in Aeronautics and Space. The participation of research bodies, local government, and aeronautics and space industries sharing a common goal has led to the creation of unique test facilities, unmatched anywhere in the world, and of air and space flying labs.

Role in the project

CIRA will take part in several tasks of this project, providing knowledge and experience built in previous European, national and regional programmes related to safety issues. Specific and relevant experiences have been built in previous Coordination and Support Actions dedicated to coordinating research and networking and also in R&D projects related to safety issues (e.g. development of technology, RAMS activities, and product certification).
