New Agreement with Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics

BCMaterials has signed a collaboration agreement with the Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics (NUAA) from China. The agreement involves a 'Global Partnership Strategy', and is the result of a magnificent previous relationship between both institutions, facilitated in an outstanding manner by Qi Zhang, Ikerbasque Research Professor at BCMaterials.

Last May, our scientific director, Senentxu Lanceros-Mendez, was named Visiting Professor of the NUAA. This important agreement is now sealed, signed by Song Yingdong, vice president of the NUAA, and Iñaki Serna, manager of BCMaterials, at our headquarters in Leioa.

As expressed in the document, BCMaterials and NUAA want to take the agreement to a higher level with respect to conventional scientific and academic cooperation agreements. To achieve this, an extensive collaboration program is planned. In the scientific section, the commitments to exchange professors and researchers stand out for holding talks, conferences and classes, and the creation of a “joint laboratory” that will allow common research achievements.

On the academic side, it is planned to hold bilateral seminars and promote student exchanges, research stays at both institutions and the organization of international symposiums.

Founded in 1952, NUAA is one of the most important Chinese universities. With a wide academic offering, NUAA has a prestigious program in aeronautical engineering and technology, astronautics and civil aviation. Materials science plays an important role in this field and is one of the areas on which the NUAA collaboration with BCMaterials has its focus, along with the areas of digitalization and energy. Our center will offer its experience in the design, processing, characterization and application of new materials and will have access to the excellent infrastructure, and the talent of NUAA professors, researchers and students so that this agreement has a great impact on the excellence of both institutions.
