The ICARUS project is an FP7-EU funded project squarely targeted to support the European Disability Strategy 2010-2020 and its implementation plan. The consortium members are: ONCE Foundation, Carlos III University of Madrid, Aeroconseil, Alitalia, Technosite and Vía Libre (Fundosa Accesibilidad).
The project will contribute to initiate changes in air transport activities and services. The aim is to allow easier access to services for all citizens, by providing insights on R&D areas that might improve the air transport access issue.
The general objective of ICARUS is to identify, characterize, justify and prioritize research and analysis approaches in those solution areas with the greatest potential towards improving access to air transportation for disable and elderly people.
