    Today, the main topics of international cooperation are related to RM, Composites, Mechanizing, Surface Treatments, ICT and Nanomaterials transformation

    Main Challenges

    AERA and its partners are starting a walk in aerospace and all of us would like to exploit all our and European innovation potential collaboration between us.
    AERA was named “excellent cluster” for the Spanish Minister of Industry last year and pretend to promote the transnational cooperation between clusters, SMEs, Large Entities and Research Institutes and Technological Centres.
    It is absolutely necessary develop and implement innovative products, process and service concepts to be competitive introducing in the global market high value products where the cooperation between all agents it is crucial.
