On the same day, the two parties signed a cooperation agreement on engineering polymer nanocomposites for aeronautic applications. Both sides agreed to carry out research and technology activities on electrically conductive, self-healing and toughening nanocomposites. The aim is to explore the application of the state-of-art nanocomposite technology in the aeronautic industry.
Airbus also revealed its commitment to setting up an Airbus Scholarship programme in NCNST to support the development of the future talents in the nanoscience area.
“Nanoscience is changing people’s perception and will have great impact on the future economy and industry development,” stated Liu Minghua, director, NCNTC.
