Aeronautics is a highly innovative field of industry known for its complexity in R&D, many-faceted technological progresses, large-scale and high-demand investments in R&D and production. Aeronautics is also expected to meet the demand of time-efficient connection of people, regions, countries - an aspect that is anticipated to significantly gain in importance in the years to come.
With challenging perspectives of further increase of air transport, it is necessary to expand research activities in a wide range of areas in order to reduce carbon dioxide and noise emissions, cut fuel consumption, and optimize material inputs. It is apparent that close cooperation between SME, industrial leaders, universities, and research organizations on multinational level is of most benefit to reach the ambitious (environmental) goals.
Fraunhofer IFAM is a key player aiming at just that: contributing to cutting-edge R&D by e.g. developing surface technologies such as the riblet (sharkskin) coating system and anti-icing coatings or joint developments for higher efficiency in fiber-reinforced material production, the institute focusses on the application of technologies. On this occasion of DJW "Asa no Kai", we invite you to learn about most recent trends, cutting edge technologies, joint aviation projects in Germany and Japan, as well as innovation set to significantly influence the future of aviation industry.
We look forward to welcoming you to the "Asa no Kai" premiere in Bremen!
