Impact on people and society: research projects
For over 100 years, NRL has been a leading knowledge institute for applied research, committed to a better world of tomorrow. We work objectively and independently, for and with the national and international business community and government agencies.
On this page you will find a number of the research projects related tot this programme.
The goal of the Clean Sky 2 TE-project GREENPORT2050 is to assess at the airport level the environmental impact up to 2050 of innovative technologies for fixed-wing aircraft developed in this programme.
Goals 2023: delivering the evaluation results to Clean Sky 2 TE and Clean Sky 2 JU.
Project Mitigation Strategies for Airborne Infection Control - MIST
In MIST, research is being conducted into the dispersion of aerosols (1 – 50 micrometres) that are relevant for the spread of viruses and other infectious diseases. The project looks at locations where high concentrations of aerosols can occur, and potential solutions and the efficiency of these.
Goal 2023: To establish the most efficient and sustainable combination of technological and organisational measures for preventing the spread of viruses in the aircraft cabin.
Partners: TNO, Marin, UTwente, RadboudUMC, RIVM, TU/e, UMCG, TU Delft
Impact Monitor Horizon EU
The ambition of the EU project ‘Impact Monitor’ is to deliver a coherent framework with guidance, which will become the standard for holistic evaluations of sustainability, economic and societal impacts of European aviation research.
Goals 2023: delivery of an initial version of the framework with guidance (assuming a project start in January 2023).
Partners: DLR, ONERA, CIRA, Cranfield University, EASN, University of Stuttgart, Transport & Mobility Leuven, University of Patras en Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya.
Research into interaction between driver and intelligent systems. NLR will use a integrated system of a car that can drive autonomously and determine for itself which situation is more suitable for people to steer and which situation is more suitable for the car to have full control. The system must have driven in Sweden and Italy firstly, have indicated the advantages and disadvantages and have made a safety assessment. NLR is contributing with a small-scale trial in which brain activity is being investigated as a factor for estimating the human condition. In other words: whether people can quickly take control. NLR also contributes to the assessment of the safety aspects of such a car as described above.
Goals 2023: completion of the project, including contributions related to human factors and safety analysis (reporting/dissemination).
Partners: SWOV, Altran, Chemnitz university of technology, VTI, Autoliv, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Ben Gurion university, Kongsberg, Cygnify, TU Delft, Zenseact and Veoneer.
