ANIMA  stands for Aviation Noise Impact Management through Novel Approaches. The ANIMA project is a people-oriented research project. It aims at identifying and diffusing best practices to lower the noise annoyance endured by communities around airports. The project also makes an effort to better understand the non-acoustical factors which influence noise annoyance, but also to improve the quality of life of communities surrounding airports. The ARC is involved in the project as the communication partner, being leader of the work package dedicated to communication, dissemination and exploitation of project results.

ANIMA is financially supported by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme ever and it is the financial instrument implementing the Innovation Union. ANIMA project is a 48-months project with a total budget of over €7.4 million. The project also partakes to Future Sky, a global initiative aiming at addressing major challenges faced by the European Air Transport by 2050.
