The 15th Trilateral Meeting between DLR, ONERA, and JAXA held in Paris

On June 18th 2019 during the Paris Air Show at Le Bourget, the 15th Trilateral Meeting between DLR (The German Aerospace Center), ONERA (The French Aerospace Lab), and JAXA (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency) was held to promote collaborative research among the 3 organizations.

DLR, ONERA and JAXA have been working closely together in aviation research for more than 15 years. In the Paris meeting, the executives from the 3 organizations reviewed the progress of joint researches, and exchanged ideas on the future areas of collaboration. A new agreement for trilateral cooperation on rotorcraft that will investigate optimization methods for the creation of a new generation of rotorcraft blades was also signed at the meeting.

The next trilateral meeting is expected to be held in Berlin in May 2020 on the margins of the ILA Berlin Airshow. A technical workshop to foster information exchange amongst researchers from the 3 organizations is also being planned.
