Development of Regional Employment and Airport Areas Manpower (DREAAM)
DREAAM was an Erasmus+ project that had started in October 2018. DREAAM was a 24-month project with a total budget of €111,175.
Our objective was to foster an exchange of good practices on vocational education and training (VET) in airport areas by focusing on regional branding, job attractivity, skills definition and mobility, DREAAM aimed to facilitate the recruitment process for regions and airport platforms and to create more training and employment opportunities for the surrounding local communities.
The strategic partnership of DREAAM project strived to create knowledge and policy recommendations in order to develop the skills of the population residing in airport areas so that they meet the criteria of the employers, such as airport companies.
Landside Airports Accessibility (LAirA)
LAirA addressed the specific and significant challenge of the multimodal, smart and low carbon mobility integration of airports and airport landside access in the mobility systems of Central Europe. The project’s objective was to reduce the energy use and the environmental impacts of transport activities in airports and hinterlands.
LAirA integrated seven key thematic areas: Electric mobility, Air-Rail links, Walking & cycling, Shared mobility, Intelligent Transport Systems, Wayfinding, Road Public Transport.
LAirA was financially supported by the European Union’s Interreg Central Europe programme, which is an EU cohesion policy programme that encouraged cooperation beyond borders. LAirA was a 30-month project with a total budget of €2.3 million.

Cleaner airports, decarbonized regions (dAIR)
The goal of dAIR was to improve the surface accessibility to airport zones and the CO2 neutrality of airport operator activities. The project paid special attention to the optimal involvement of business R&D communities in creating well connected green airports.
dAIR looked at how can the carbon from surface access and airport operations be reduced. These two together account for about half of the carbon footprint. Through study visits and workshops, as well as stakeholder forums, the 14 member organizations were able to exchange experience and see what reduction solutions had been used and had worked at other airports and how they could be applied to their own.
