Mubadala and Boeing forge closer links with new R&D agreement

Posted 10 March 2016 · Add Comment

Mubadala and Boeing have signed a new strategic agreement to collaborate on research and development to expand aerospace manufacturing capabilities in the UAE.

The 5-year agreement sees Boeing join Mubadala’s existing R&D ecosystem in Abu Dhabi, including the Aerospace Research and Innovation Center (ARIC) at Khalifa University and the Masdar Institute of Science and Technology.
Initial projects include research in the areas of robotics and aircraft assembly.
While future projects will align with ongoing work in the UAE to provide the most value for Boeing, Mubadala and aerostructures subsidiary Strata Manufacturing.
Mubadala Aerospace chief Homaid Al Shemmari said the agreement “strengthens our longstanding relationship with Boeing, and provides a platform for continued innovation.
“As we look to support Abu Dhabi’s economic diversification efforts and build a knowledge based economy across the UAE the development of new technology is crucial for a long-term sustainable industry,” he said.
Building on the two companies’ strategic framework signed in Dubai in 2013, the R&D agreement will support the technology and capability roadmap of Strata, building on its vision to become a leading global aerospace supplier.
