Boeing selects location for Brazil aerospace research, technology center

Boeing announced April 9 that it will place its Brazilian research and technology center at the hub of Brazil’s aerospace industry – in the city of São José dos Campos’ Technological Park.

The new Boeing Research & Technology-Brazil Center will open later this year in remodeled existing space at the technological park with staffing of up to 12 Boeing researchers and scientists. They will investigate and develop aerospace technology projects with nearby Brazilian government technology institutions including the Department of Aerospace Science and Technology and National Institute for Space Research (INPE), as well as Brazilian companies such as Embraer.

The Boeing Research & Technology-Brazil Center also will serve as Boeing’s focal point for technology collaboration with universities throughout Brazil. The company previously announced joint research activities with the University of São Paulo and the Federal University of Minas Gerais.

“The São José dos Campos Technological Park’s innovative environment, close proximity to partner research institutions and municipal support make it the ideal place for Boeing’s research and technology work in Brazil,” said Al Bryant, vice president of Boeing Research & Technology-Brazil.

“We are excited to take this next step in strengthening our relationships with Brazil’s research-and-development community to develop technology for the world,” added Donna Hrinak, president of Boeing Brazil. “Together, we can grow Brazil’s capabilities in ways that benefit aerospace and help meet the country’s goals for economic and technology development.”

“As a city that seeks to be at the forefront of innovation for Brazil, it is crucial that we establish partnerships with enterprises such as Boeing that develop technology for global use,” said Carlinhos Almeida, mayor of São José dos Campos. “We are very pleased to host Boeing’s research and technology efforts here in São José dos Campos.”

Horacio Forjaz, general director of the São José dos Campos Technological Park, said the park’s staff will be dedicated to providing state-of-the-art infrastructure and services that enable efficient collaboration with Brazilian research institutions.

As Boeing’s sixth advanced research center outside of the United States, the Boeing Research & Technology-Brazil Center will focus on sustainable aviation biofuels, advanced air traffic management, remote sensing, advanced metals and bio-materials, and support and services technologies.
