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.
