The 3rd Brazilian Swedish Workshop in Aeronautics and Defence will be held on November 12, 2015 at the Technological Park of São José dos Campos. The workshop is organized by the Swedish-Brazilian Research and Innovation Centre (CISB) and the Aeronautics Institute of Technology (ITA), with the participation of Swedish and Brazilian government, researchers and industries.

Following the success of the second edition, this third one aims at promoting opportunities for innovation and strengthening the participation of industry. The Workshop will bring an overview of the strategic discussions at the Aeronautics Bilateral Coordination Committee and introduce new programs with focus on innovation from both countries. The current status of bilateral research projects and results as well will be presented as motivation and example of the potential of Brazilian Swedish collaboration in Aeronautics and Defence. Hopefully this opportunity creates conditions for engagement and commitment of more actors in the cooperation under construction.
