CATER (Coordinating Air transport Time Efficiency Research)
CATER, is a Coordination and Support Action in Air Transport Systems within the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). As indicated by its title, the project deals with the topic of time efficiency and primarily aims at acting as a Research & Innovation observatory and policy advisory center run by an authoritative group with deep industry knowledge, access to a network of all relevant R&I organisations and excellent information gathering and knowledge management processes and tools. Precisely, CATER aims at providing air transport time efficiency stakeholders with a panoramic view of what research and innovation is being conducted (R&I state of the art), of existing gaps in the landscape and bottlenecks to innovation, as well as of how EU (and non EU) funded research projects meet ACARE goals according with SRIA needs. Accordingly, CATER will deliver insightful reports and strategic recommendations packaged and disseminated effectively.
