Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University will be cutting the ribbon for its new aviation safety research center this fall thanks to a $5.1 million contribution from Boeing

The newly named Boeing Center for Aviation and Aerospace Safety will work to advance aerospace safety through independent research aimed at mitigating known and emerging operational safety risks.

The 13,000-square-foot building on Embry-Riddle’s Daytona Beach, Florida campus is undergoing an extensive renovation that, once delivered, will include offices, lab spaces and dedicated classrooms for safety-related professional education courses.

The center will foster collaboration across academia, industry and government entities by establishing research partnerships — involving graduate and undergraduate students who will gain real-world exposure to the industry through hands-on research projects — that will benefit the flying public.

Boeing and the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University share a partnership that goes back decades. Boeing and Embry-Riddle have previously partnered on Boeing’s Engineering Accelerated Hiring Initiative, the Boeing Career Mentoring Program, the Boeing Scholars program and the Engineering Development Program.
