The event was held at the ITA campus in Sao Jose dos Campos, Sao Paulo, Brazil. The goal “is to find innovative technological solutions that will enhance the sustainability and competitiveness of the global innovation ecosystem,” according to a company statement.
“The CPE counts on a shared investment of RD 48 million (around USD 10 million) over the next five years to purchase research equipment, research grants, and administrative support. Called FLYMOV, the applied research environment favours constructing and disseminating knowledge, training highly qualified human resources, and producing high-impact scientific and technological results.
“The CPE is expected to bring together about 150 professionals among professors, research fellows, and experts from the aeronautics industry who seek innovative technological solutions. This partnership enables the conditions for technology transfer between industrial, public, and third-sector players, enhancing the competitiveness of the Brazilian and global innovation ecosystem.”
