ACACIA, a Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Action coordinated by the DLR-Institute of
Atmospheric Physics, started in January 2020 with a kick-off event at DLR
in Oberpfaffenhofen. In total, 11 participants from 7 European countries cooperate in ACACIA.
ACACIA @ ECATS conference 2023
Several contributions of ACACIA at ECATS conference in Delft, 24 - 26 Oct 2023
ACACIA participated with several contributions at the ECATS conference in Delft, 24 - 26 Oct 2023. This event gave the opportunity to scientists and researchers worldwide to present state-of-the-art research, review recent achievements, and at the same time provided a strategic perspective on future directions in environmentally sustainable aviation.
ACACIA used this opportunity to connect to other projects and to share the latest results of research.
ACACIA participated with 2 posters, 1 talk, 1 keynote speech, and the participation in the EU-Project Panel session.
Mention of ACACIA publication in UK policy document
The Fuglestvedt et al. 2023 policy paper attracted attention in UK policy
The Policy paper 'Jet Zero strategy: one year on' published by the Department for Transport of the UK government mentiones our ACACIA publication 'A “greenhouse gas balance” for aviation in line with the Paris Agreement' by Fuglestvedt et al. 2023. The ACACIA publication provides policymakers with an overview of issues and choices that are important regarding which approach is most appropriate for defining and achieving a greenhouse gas balance for aviation in the context of the Paris Agreement. This content seemed significant enough for the UK government to mention this paper as the only scientific paper within its report.
