Embraer and the Royal Netherlands Aerospace Center have signed a Memorandum of Understanding for a potential strategic collaboration relating to aerospace research. The research areas include technology development and innovation in defense and space systems, general aviation, MRO, air mobility, and sustainability. The MoU also brings together the possibility to extend and increase long-term relations between Embraer and Royal NLR during the design and development of Embraer products, such as the E-Jets family and recent E2 models, the legacy family of executive jets and the KC-390 Millennium multi-mission aircraft, and programs. In this context, the two companies are already discussing potential opportunities related to automated maintenance procedures.

“Embraer and NLR are long-time collaborators with each party contributing specific expertise necessary to conduct complex research and developments to be applied in advanced technologies and innovative products. This new MoU is another important step in our long-term relationship in The Netherlands and reiterates our commitment to further strengthen our collaborative partnership with NLR in a dynamic aerospace ecosystem,” said Jackson Schneider, President and CEO of Embraer Defense & Security.

Michel Peters, CEO of Royal NLR, adds: “Indeed, Embraer and Royal NLR have a longstanding relationship and we are happy to strengthen and extend our relation even more through this MoU. This partnership is an opportunity for both parties to address shared challenges, identify common interests and to develop innovative approaches and methods to address the issues of global aviation. I really welcome the increased cooperation between Embraer and Royal NLR, and I am looking forward to see our mutual benefit.”

In the last two decades, Embraer and Royal NLR have been working in close collaboration in research and development in such areas as new materials, flight-deck technology, system development, and aerodynamics applied in the company’s leading-edge products including wind tunnel tests and advanced aero-elastic wind tunnel models.

Embraer and Royal NLR are both members of The Netherlands Aerospace Group (NAG). This MoU is a further development of the Memorandum of Understanding signed between Embraer and NAG in September 2021 to discuss potential strategic relationships in the fields of aviation and sustainability.
