Embraer will establish an Engineering and Technology Center in its aeronautical cluster in Melbourne, Fla., to conduct R&D activities for both product and technology development. Initially it will focus on executive jet interiors and will include a materials and interiors laboratory. Embraer plans to partner with educational institutions to develop programs of mutual benefit. It is the second research and development center established outside its headquarters complex at São José dos Campos, Brazil. The first one, located in Minas Gerais, Brazil, was announced last November.
