Kick-off meeting for the DLR-ONERA AI research center

On 22 and 23 April, the kick-off event for the German-French cooperation between DLR and ONERA for the joint virtual research center "AI4Aerospace Engineering" took place. The cooperation between the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and the French Office national d'études et de recherches aérospatiales (ONERA) had its beginning last year at the Paris Air Show in Le Bourget. The goal is a German-French "virtual" AI research center for aerospace.

ONERA and DLR – joint research into AI for the aerospace sector

On 17 June 2019, during the 53rd Paris Air Show at Le Bourget, echoing the bilateral friendship treaty on cooperation and integration signed between Germany and France in January 2019, Bruno Sainjon, CEO of ONERA, signed together with DLR an agreement on their collaboration in the field of artificial intelligence (AI). Over time, this cooperation could be used as a basis to establish a ‘virtual’ Franco-German AI research centre for the European aerospace sector.
