Airbus Extends Technology Research With Chinese Partners

A Joint Lab Established To Explore The Application Of Nanoscience In Aeronautic Industry

Airbus Beijing Engineering Center (ABEC), a joint venture between Airbus and China Aviation Industry Corporation (AVIC), opened a new lab on nanocomposite materials jointly with National Center for Nanoscience and Technology of China. On the same day, the two parties signed a cooperation agreement on engineering polymer nanocomposites for aeronautic applications.

Both sides agree to carry out R&T activities on electrically conductive, self-healing and toughening nanocomposites. The aim is to explore the application of the state-of-art nanocomposite technology in the aeronautic industry.

The research will be jointly conducted by ABEC engineers and a group of top Chinese academies and universities, including NCNST, Tsinghua University, Sun Yat-Sen University, HK University of Science and Technology and Hong Kong Polytechnic University. The cooperation is also endorsed by Du Shanyi, member of the Chinese Academy of Engineering and Fan Shoushan, member of the Chinese Academy of Science, who will act as the project consultants.

Airbus also commits to set up an Airbus Scholarship program in NCNST to support the development of the future talents in the nanoscience area.

Liu Minghua, Director of National Center for Nanoscience and Technology of China said: “As the edge-cutting technology, nanoscience is changing people’s perception and will have great impact on the future economy and industry development. I am happy to witness today’s signature with Airbus and look forward to a fruitful result of our cooperation. And I would like to express my gratitude to Airbus for their support on the future talents nurturing by setting up an Airbus Scholarship in our center. ”

“I am delighted to witness another milestone in the history of ABEC and to see our cooperation in China extending to new areas with the new partners. Research and innovation are key drivers for Airbus and we think highly of China’s innovation abilities. China is a leader in the field of nanoscience, I am confident that we are able to contribute to the pragmatic application of nanoscience in the aeronautic industry, with the expertise of Airbus and our Chinese partners”, said Francois Mery, COO of Airbus China commercial aircraft.

Since its creation in 2005, ABEC has been successfully taking part in designing components for all the Airbus programs including the company’s flagship A380 as well as A350XWB. It performs the specific design work related to the 5% A350XWB airframe work packages to be carried out in China.

Currently around 130 Chinese engineers work in ABEC, applying their skills and competencies in line with Airbus highest end standards and using state-of-art technologies. They develop engineering solutions along the full life cycle of an aircraft, which covers areas from research and design to manufacturing and in services support.
