The ECARE methodology will be managed on two different scales: the ECARE Pilot level and the ECARE Upscale level

The ECARE Pilot will be carried out by three major European aeronautical clusters (AV, HAv and DAC) totalising more than 1000 member organisations as well as the Association of European Academia active in aeronautics related research, namely the European Aeronautics Science Network (EASN), which is represented by its operating arm, EASN-TIS. Currently, EASN counts ~400 members affiliated to almost all significant universities active in the European aerospace ecosystem. In the frame of the Pilot, these four ECARE partners will work closely with funding bodies in France, Germany, Italy, Occitanie, Nouvelle Aquitaine, Hamburg and Campania regions to identify technology topics and funding complementarities and synergies. 

At Upscale level, other stakeholders such as European aeronautical clusters and their related funding bodies as well as other relevant networks and association will be involved to replicate ECARE methodologies and foster their adoption at European level. 

Funding bodies, clusters, networks and associations involved in the project (but not as partners) will constitute the ECARE Stakeholder Group (ESG), for which an initial list of members including organisations from France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain and Romania has already been validated.
