The project

The project

SafeClouds is the only data-related project of H2020- "Addressing aviation safety challenges" MG3.1-2016 call. It was launched October 2016, with a duration of 36 months

Objectives · Who we are · Work completed


SafeClouds proposes a [big] data-driven approach to achieve a deeper understanding of the dynamics of the system, where risks are pro-actively identified and mitigated. This will be achieved through the following objectives:

  • · A user-requirements driven approach for data mining in aviation safety. Two concrete implementation scenarios will be considered: airline operations perspective (SafeOps) and runway safety perspective (SafeRunway).
  • · Novel data structures and safety knowledge representation.
  • · Develop the proof of concept and validate in a laboratory the safety data analysis paradigms
  • · Assembling a group of entities that encompass the entire data-cycle for a unified, achievable vision for the future of safety analytics in Europe
