Short project description
EUNADICS-AV is a European project where several European organizations work together in a consortium to achieve their mutual goals. The abbreviation EUNADICS-AV stands for European Natural Airborne Disaster Information and Coordination System for Aviation. The main objective of this European project is closing the significant gap in European-wide data and information availability during airborne hazards.
Aviation is one of the most critical ways of transport in this century. Even short interruptions in flight schedules can do major economic damages. The focus of this project is on environmental emergency scenarios (airborne hazards). These are considered rare, but with an extremely high impact such as volcano eruptions, nuclear accidents and emergencies and other scenarios where aerosols and certain trace gases are injected into the atmosphere.
The EUNADICS-AV consortium consists of 21 participating organizations from 12 different countries. It includes National Meteorological Services, Monitoring data providers, Operational Volcanologists, SME’s, a University institute, an Air Navigation Service provider and a Military Organization.
The EUNADICS-AV project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research programme for Societal challenges - smart, green and integrated transport under grant agreement no. 723986.
