The Netherlands has been a core partner for Embraer’s efforts in the development of innovative and sustainable aviation technology. And now, EmbraerX, a disruptive innovation subsidiary of the Embraer Group, will also strengthen this collaborative journey by opening an office at the Aerospace Innovation Hub@TUD, at the TU Delft Campus. The contract signing ceremony took place today, and operations are expected to start by the end of this year.
“EmbraerX’s physical presence at the Aerospace Innovation Hub@TUD enables, amongst other possibilities, a way to accelerate new partnerships to co-explore the application of disruptive technologies for new businesses. Being here, we will be able to develop joint educational, research, and innovation projects that will create a vision for a greener future to mobility,” said Daniel Moczydlower, CEO of EmbraerX.
“The Aerospace Innovation Hub aims to accelerate innovation in aerospace by facilitating the interaction between science and industry. Having EmbraerX present in the Hub will add value to the vibrant eco-system,” said Femke Verdegaal, director of the Aerospace Innovation Hub.
EmbraerX’s strategic position at the Aerospace Innovation Hub will serve as a base to be continuously connected with the TU Delft entrepreneurial ecosystem, startups, test facilities and spin-offs. This facilitates collaboration between professionals and researchers of both organizations.
TU Delft is world-renowned for its academic programmes and research in the field of Aerospace Engineering. The university has a long history of intensive collaboration with Brazilian experts in the sustainability research field, an area of knowledge that Embraer has led with its roadmap and concepts development plan.
