Linköping, Sweden


The 4th Brazilian Swedish Workshop in Aeronautics and Defence will be held on October 13, 2016 in Linkoping, Sweden. The Workshop is organized by the Swedish-Brazilian Research and Innovation Centre (CISB), the Aeronautics Institute of Technology (ITA) and Linkoping University (LiU).

The initiative is in its 4th edition. For the first time it will be held in Sweden, with the expectation of repeating the same success of the previous editions held in Brazil. The 4th Workshop will bring the current status of the bilateral cooperation in aeronautics and defence, the benefits achieved so far, cases of success and future perspectives. Key lectures will illustrate the evolution of the R&D&I agenda, including on-going activities, future plans of the Bilateral Aeronautics Committee, the Brazilian Reference Group in Aeronautics, and the Endowed Professor Chair.

Besides enriching lectures, participants will have the opportunity to join a study visit at Saab, including Gripen E facilities, visit laboratories of Linkoping University, and enjoy a guided tour and dinner at the Swedish Air Force Museum.
