National aeronautics innovation
– Competence clustering

Within the framework of NFFP, work has been initiated to establish competence clusters in different technologies and related to Saab’s and GKN’s R&D activities. The goal is to further develop the cluster activities as a natural tool in NFFP/Innovair to foster participation in international aeronautics research by cooperation between industry, SMEs, universities and institutes.

The following competence clusters have been identified:
