The UK Network in Aeroacoustics is part of the European X-Noise EV Coordination and Support Action funded by the EC.
X-Noise is a European collaborative network of industrial, SMEs, university and research organizations working in the field of aeroacoustics applied to aircraft noise research. The network was formed originally in 1998, and is led by SNECMA.
More recently, in order to improve the integration of European research activities in aircraft noise, a number of national and regional networks have been formed across Europe under the auspices of X-Noise. The United Kingdom X-Noise Network in Aeroacoustics was established in 2006.
The key objectives of this and similar networks formed across Europe is the coordination of activities at a national level connected to research in aircraft noise.
