JAXA and DLR sign joint declaration
20 September 2017
On 20 September 2017, the Japanese Space Agency JAXA and the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) signed a joint declaration for the continuation of their project-related cooperation. This partnership is of great importance to both parties: science is becoming an increasingly important for society and is therefore also a connecting element between nations. DLR is currently cooperating with 18 scientific institutions and universities in Japan in more than 50 projects. These include, for example, projects in Earth observation and planetary research, space robotics and atmospheric research, as well as aeronautics research.
