The primary goal of PULSAR (Propelling eUropean Leadership through Synergizing Aviation Research) is to help European policymakers identify key aviation research efforts that must be carried out until 2050 and beyond with respect to aviation noise and emissions, in the framework of the EU environmental objectives.

Leader: ONERA, the French Aerospace Lab, France

Duration: 48 months

Start date: 01.01.2023

Total budget: 2 million EUR

Project framework: Horizon 2020


Given the current context of regaining EU strategic autonomy and attractiveness, the aviation sector must anticipate the need for new skills, education, and qualified human resources to tackle environmental issues, future innovations, and regulations. Moreover, citizens and stakeholders express more and more their concerns about the environmental impact of aviation and call for traffic limitations. They need to be better informed about the aviation sector’s challenges and innovations to address climate concerns, and emissions and noise impacts at airports, but also their concerns need to be better acknowledged to improve quality of life. Therefore, the secondary objective of PULSAR is to connect the European aviation R&I roadmap for noise and emissions with education and skills and to further communicate the European aviation R&I to citizens and relevant stakeholders.


ARC's role: leader of the communication and education work package. Focus on coordinating the communication and dissemination activities and also policy recommendations.
