ABSTRACT

The project created a platform for enhancing aeronautics and air transport research and development cooperation between the EU and Canada, and for exploring the potential for and promoting the participation of Canadian stakeholders with their European counterparts in joint activities. The main objectives for CANNAPE were: (1) to explore the potential for enhancing EU and Canadian cooperation through analysis of themes and topics of aeronautics and air transport R&D; (2) to develop and enhance networks and partnerships between EU and Canada in specific technical themes that will provide mutually beneficial R&D cooperation; and (3) to promote Canadian participation in the aeronautics and air transport activities of FP7 through focused workshops, information and advisory services. CANNAPE was built on previous work undertaken, and captured the aeronautics and air transport capabilities and needs of the EU and Canada, to enhance further co-operation.

TECHNOLOGY PARTNERS’ ROLE IN THE PROJECT

Development of networks and partnerships through the organisation of workshops, using a workshop strategy aligned with the FP7 Calls in aeronautics. Supporting the organisation of dedicated workshops (in Europe and Canada) and to ensuring the achievement of highest participation and maximum attention of experts from academia, research, industry, and policy and funding community in related / linked activities and events organised through the project.
