This paper presents the RINGO (“Research Infrastructures – Needs, Gaps and Overlap”) project, a Coordination
and Support Action funded by the European Commission under H2020, and its approach for the identification
and assessment of needs, gaps and overlaps for strategic aviation research infrastructures in Europe. The
identification of research infrastructure needs to work towards the goals laid out in Flightpath 2050 produced by
the Advisory Council for Aviation Research and innovation in Europe (ACARE) will be performed by expert
interviews based on the Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA), which serves as a roadmap for
aeronautical research for the next decades. The creation of a catalogue of existing research infrastructure is based
on available inventories and an additional search for specific needs dependent on interview outcomes. The
following synthesis and matching of needed and existing infrastructures will yield information about gaps and
overlaps. Initial results of expert interviews and first identified, existing research infrastructures are presented.
