Knowledge exchange

The ASRC is a hub for local MRO companies, Boeing, and academia to exchange technology and business information. The centre holds internal forums annually for members to share their experiences and discuss with Boeing their needs and wants. The centre also organises multi-centre and international collaborations, tying up with the worldwide network of Aviation Research Centres.

Apart from technology-oriented research, the ASRC also collaborates with Mainland and overseas institutions to conduct business-oriented research and surveys on MRO market and regulatory trends.
