Large collaborative projects must seek effective ways to integrate the capabilities, interests and moods of the various technological agents, companies, institutions, and ultimately, of the “partners” of the project.
Among its constituent members the CFAA counts with two agents of intellectual activity development, implementation of R&D and transfer and industrial development. One of them is the university, which by nature facilitates academic and institutional collaborations. The other is the Business Grouping (EIG), a group of companies with common and compatible interests that by constitution seeks to unify, coordinate, cooperate and enhance the action and industrial and business interest within this project.
The grouping is called “BUSINESS GROUPING FOR DEVELOPMENT OF ADVANCED AEROSPACE MANUFACTURING TECHNIQUES, EIG”. Therefore, it has its own structure and succeeds in making the CFAA relationship with industry a unique, effective channel and generates synergies that can transfer and enhance beyond CFAA itself.
Moreover, being an “EIG member” implies automatically be part of “member of the CFAA” with all its advantages and with a return of practical and tangible results on projects that the centre runs.
The Parties agree to cooperate, through its participation in the Grouping, in research and development of advanced manufacturing technologies, as well as in the subsequent transfer of R&D results from the industrial agents themselves.
