KDC research topics range from business case research and operational trials, which supports the implementation decision making, to conceptual studies with the purpose of solution finding. The latter has a longer path to implementation than the previous.
KDC research is categorized in accordance with the European Operational Concept Validation Methodology (E-OCVM) framework, as established by Eurocontrol. Which is visualized below. The scope of the the KDC research agenda is limited to segments V1 to V3, as highlighted. For each of the categories from the KDC scope, a chart is shown that details whether or not the finished research is implemented. Categorizing the research this way gives more insight into the value of implementation for the different types of research in the KDC.
