The Aeronautics Advanced Manufacturing Centre (CFAA in Spanish) was created with the objective of developing advanced manufacturing technologies; these developmental level technologies can be quickly transferred to our industrial companies and are highly oriented towards this key sector of the economy. The centre also acts as an intersection of ideas and advancement for agencies and companies with capabilities, interests, and businesses in the aeronautical engines and structural components sector.

The conception of this centre as a conjunction of the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) and the Business Cluster for the Development of Advanced Aeronautics Manufacturing Techniques, together with the Basque Country Government and Provincial Council of Bizkaia, in collaboration with the Technological and Scientific Park of Bizkaia, enables the Center to focus on the end applications of aeronautics production, without forgetting the generation, and use and fine-tuning of new knowledge in advanced manufacturing techniques.

About us

The CFAA is an open collaboration between the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) and the founding companies of this centre. This creates a space that invites and attracts talented individuals through its ability to combine scientific rigor, the creative atmosphere of the University, and a competitive business environment. These aspects, which combine efforts and transfer knowledge and wealth to the society, make the Centre one of the newest fundamental pillars of the University of Basque Country UPV/EHU.

Multidisciplinary groups of expert staff also work on the Centre´s projects with the objective of providing an eclectic combination of experiences, capabilities, and concepts. These different perspectives will ensure socioeconomic success and projection.

The main role of the staff is to coordinate the activities of the Centre. They are responsible for planning and executing the R+D+I activities of the centre and carrying out the transverse tasks of the centre, such as team coordination or compliance with various regulations.

Thus, the CFAA creates skilled jobs and advances the training of dozens of people a year who perform training tasks in the environment of the CFAA.
