STRESS brings together 5 partners from 4 countries (Italy, France, Turkey and Belgium).


Each one of them contributes to the project with unique expertise: a strong understanding of Human Factors (Deep Blue), a solid experience in the use of neurophysiologic measurements (Sapienza University), a deep knowledge of air traffic management domain (ENAC and Anadolu University) and a overall view on what is the strategic agenda for the development of this domain in the upcoming years (EUROCONTROL).



Deep Blue specialises in research and consulting on human-centred design and validation in transport, healthcare and environment. Its mission is to help organisations innovate by analysing problems and procedures, designing tailored solutions and validating them in the field.


Deep Blue provides consultancy in human factors, safety, dependability and sustainability as well as professional training.

  • University


Anadolu University is public university in Turkey which has all disciplines including unique facilities such as the Faculty of Aeronautics and Astronautics and International Airport together.


The faculty provides academic education and professional training in the various disciplines of aviation including Air Traffic Management, aviation Management, Pilot Training and aircraft Maintenance.


The faculty also operates its own international airport (LTBY) serving for domestic and international flights and tower control facility providing air traffic services to the commercial and training flight operations. The faculty recently extended its capabilities in Airport and ATM research by installation of the new radar and aerodrome simulator systems (6 different simulation environment including Anadolu Airport).
