About TEAM_Play

A large set of policy issues in the field of aviation and environment is discussed in ICAO/CAEP and on European level. Currently, the most urgent requirements are the capability of modelling noise, NOx stringencies and greenhouse gases in relation to the Kyoto protocol as well as related agreements together with their respective effects. Careful analysis of the complex interdependencies between air transport activities and environmental or economic effects is needed for the assessment of policies and guidance on a political level.

TEAM_Play has created a modelling framework to combine and advance European modelling capabilities in order to support the European perspective in the international policy arena.

TEAM_Play deals with interdependencies and trade-offs between noise, gas emissions, environmental and economic impacts of the air transport sector. The objective of TEAM_Play was to enhance the European modelling capabilities required for policy assessment. These capabilities have beenstrengthened by creating a common infrastructure allowing for the connection of existing European models.
