Embraer and AICAT (Austrian Industrial Cooperation & Aviation Technology) today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to enhance international cooperation in the aerospace sector.

The cooperation adds to Embraer’s existing relationships in Austria while exploring additional opportunities such as joint research, technology development, and contributions from the Austrian ecosystem to the supply chain of the Embraer aircraft programs. AICAT is an organization part of the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber (WKO), representing the entire aviation technology community in Austria.

“For AICAT, an association representing about 100 Austrian aviation companies most of which are SMEs and position themselves in the supply chain, an intensified cooperation with Embraer underpinned by an MoU is a great opportunity and will help both, Embraer and the Austrian Aeronautical sector, creating a more structured collaboration for their mutual benefit,” said Reinhard Marak, CEO of AICAT.

“Embraer and Austria have been building a long-term relationship for many years, and this partnership will continue to advance with the new Memorandum of Understanding. We thank AICAT, the companies, and the Austrian government representatives for this important step in our partnership,” said Marcio Monteiro, Market Intelligence Vice-President, Embraer Defense & Security.

The announcement took place at Embraer headquarters, in São José dos Campos. After the ceremony, representatives from Austrian aerospace companies and the Austrian Government had the opportunity to meet Embraer specialists in different technologies to explore opportunities for cooperation.
