NLR and ECOMAT join forces in the field of innovative and sustainable aviation

The Royal Netherlands Aerospace Centre (NLR) and ECOMAT are combining their competences and knowledge in the field of sustainable aviation, material sciences, lightweight construction, digitalisation of aviation and hydrogen applications.

Two contracts were signed on behalf of the NLR and ECOMAT: a multi-year lease for office and work space for the NLR at ECOMAT partner esploro spaces GmbH and a contract that consolidates the cooperation between the ECOMAT partners and the NLR in the field of sustainable aerospace technologies.

In the joint working phase of the kick-off meeting on 5 June 2023, the ECOMAT partners and representatives of the NLR worked, among other things, on how they can fill the new cooperation with life in the future and defined joint fields of work.

We are happy to welcome the NLR here in Bremen!
