JAXA and NRC sign framework agreement

The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) have signed a framework agreement for collaborative research in the field of aviation.

Since 2012, JAXA and the NRC have been forging collaborative relationships through joint research in the aviation field. The launch of the NRC’s Japan office in October 2019 helped strengthen the relationship between the two organizations. Currently, JAXA and the NRC are conducting research on lightning strike protection of composite materials and particle ingestion into engines.

With the conclusion of the agreement, JAXA and the NRC will further deepen the collaborative ties, creating more opportunities for continued cooperation.
