AED Cluster Portugal involves more than 80 Portuguese entities, working in the Aeronautics, Space and Defence sectors. Our Companies, Institutes and Academia share significant synergies in multiple industrial, research and engineering domains.
As President, I am very proud of the results achieved so far by the cluster while promoting the growth of the Portuguese ecosystem, which has already given proof of its value and it is, still, facing a big growth potential, capable to cope with the challenges these industrial sectors are facing.
At AED we strongly believe that the efforts and initial investments, already performed by our associates (and their outstanding human capital), will foster a consolidated and fruitful future for the Cluster at a global level.
