For the first time, our centre actively participated in the “European Researchers’ Night,” an event promoted by the European Commission and coordinated in Andalusia through Descubre Foundation, which took place last September 30th, in order to show the human side of research through direct contact with experts from Science and R&D.

FADA-CATEC attended the activities that were organized in Seville’s Plaza Nueva, where, through an exhibition, showed some aerial robots, aircraft prototypes, and unmanned aerial systems developed by the Centre, some of which had robotic arms with the capacity to multi-task. These robotics systems are the results of European R&D projects.

In the same way, FADA-CATEC presented other prototypes and parts made through additive manufacturing technology (3D Printing), for their use in the aerospace industry, specifically for integration in the space launchers from the European Space Agency (ESA). The Centre offered information material about all of its ongoing activities.

The objective of this initiative was to introduce the research carried out by the scientists and engineers of CATEC with new technologies for their transfer to the aerospace industry, and to spread social impact and aerospace technologies applications for the human welfare.

The “European Researcher’s Night,” included a high number of activities all over Spain. The event was celebrated simultaneously in the eight provinces of Andalusia, in which a total of 13 scientific institutions cooperated for the fifth consecutive year, in order to bring science closer to the public.
