Innovation starts with collaboration. TU Delft, the Aerospace Innovation Hub (AIH), and Airbus Bizlab have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to further expand their close cooperation in the field of startups and innovation. The MoU was signed by Paul Althuis (TU Delft Valorisation Centre), Femke Verdegaal (AIH) and Christian Lindener (Airbus BizLab).

AI, space, drones and sustainability

The parties have agreed to share relevant information allowing students, researchers and engineers to further investigate innovation in the fields of space, artificial intelligence, drones, material systems and sustainability.

One Single Hub

TU Delft, the Aerospace Innovation Hub and Airbus BizLab will work together on the ‘One Single Hub’ proposal from RVO (Netherlands Enterprise Agency) that will offer a single entrance to aerospace engineering (pre)incubators in the western part of the Netherlands.

Successful collaboration

“Stimulating technology transfer to society is one of the key pillars of TU Delft”, Paul Althuis states. “Combining this with the Aerospace Innovation Hub that aims to connect innovators, and Airbus BizLab that supports innovative ideas until they take off, provides the key ingredients for a successful collaboration.”

Pre-incubator community and program

The Aerospace Innovation Hub is the (pre-)incubator community and program situated at the Aerospace Engineering Faculty. In this (digital) community, student entrepreneurs, startups, researchers and industry work together to innovate aerospace. Read more about the collaboration between TU Delft and Airbus.
