EASA
European Aviation Safety Agency

EASA, set up in 2003, is a key part of the European Union’s strategy to establish and maintain a high uniform standard of safety and environmental protection in civil aviation. EASA develops close relations with counterpart organisations across the world aiming at harmonising standards and promoting better practice in aviation safety, in Europe and worldwide.

EASA is also the centrepiece of a new regulatory system which provides for a single European market in the aviation industry, to create the safest and most environment-friendly civil aviation system in the world.

Role in the project

EASA brings its experience in the ACARE SRIA framework development (as co-chair for WG4 on Safety and Security) and in liaising with key aviation stakeholders for the assessment of safety-oriented research activities. EASA is the co-leader for WP3 for dissemination of CA results, contributor to WP1 and WP2 for assessment of state-of-the-art research, and contributor to WP4 for the management of the Consortium.
