The Faculty of Aerospace Engineering at TU Delft and the Aeronautics Research Centre Niedersachsen (NFL) in Braunschweig, Germany, have signed a strategic partnership to collaborate on sustainable aviation.
This defines common goals for their basic research, geared towards sustainability in aviation. NFL is an alliance of the aerospace engineering institutes of the TU Braunschweig, the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and the Leibniz University Hannover (LUH). Both universities, TU Delft and TU Braunschweig carry out excellent research in aeronautics with a focus on sustainable flying. The agreement on a strategic partnership adds a new, far-reaching dimension to the existing cooperation.
The special about the agreement between the two universities is its quality: It goes far beyond customary university agreements, and establishes a particularly close cooperation. Both universities have agreed to share their research facilities and unpublished research data. The Memorandum of Understanding also introduces so-called cross-supervising. In addition, the two parties will work together on student exchange, aimed in particular at Honours Students and interns.
