The Aeronautics Advanced Manufacturing Center (CFAA in Spanish) was created with the objective of developing advanced manufacturing technologies. These developmental level technologies can be quickly transferred to some aeronautical industrial facilities and are highly oriented towards this key sector of the economy. The centre also acts as an intersection of ideas and advancement for agencies and companies with capabilities, interests, and businesses in the aeronautical engines and structural components sector.The conception of this centre as a conjunction of the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) and the Business Cluster for the Development of Advanced Aeronautics Manufacturing Techniques enables the centre to focus on the end applications of aeronautics production, without forgetting the generation, use and fine-tuning of new knowledge in advanced manufacturing techniques.Therefore, it is not only an initiation of joint interest as a driving force for technology, but also a new model for university-company relationships.
