Collaborative Research Centre 880 Fundamentals of High Lift for Future Civil Aircraft: Final Symposium


After two very successful funding phases starting 2011 and 2015, respectively, the Collaborative Research Centre 880 invites you to its final symposium taking place on the 17th and 18th of December 2019. The symposium aims to bring together experts in the fields of active flow control, aeroacoustics, and smart materials with a special focus on aircraft applications. The final symposium aims to share and to disseminate the project’s findings with the scientific community. The symposium’s written and oral contributions shall also serve to provide a comprehensive state-of-the-art review of the respective research fields.


The symposium will take place at the Automotive Research Centre Niedersachsen (NFF) of the Technische Universität Braunschweig located at Hermann-Blenk-Straße 42, 38108, Braunschweig.
