Aerospace Valley strongly supports the entire civil aviation value chain by fostering collaborative innovation, training, business development and employment. Beyond aviation the cluster is also active in the sectors of space (both infra and applications), drones & UAV, the defence sector, smart transportation systems or, more transversally, on embedded systems, ICT including AI, or industry 4.0.

Regarding European and international cluster cooperation, Aerospace Valley has been active consortium member of several COSME projects such as EACP-ABROAD (ESCP-4i, coordinator), EACP-EuroSME or more recently SpaceWaves and Space2Waves (ESCP-4i). Aerospace Valley strategically harnesses cross-sectoral and cross-border opportunities offered by emerging industries such as blue growth through its EU-funded (H2020 Innosup 1) projects NEPTUNE, GALATEA. UFO  on or Small Flying Objects. The cluster also aims at facilitating access to global business. Aerospace Valley has also been member of Horizon 2020 CSA-type projects such as ICARe, RADIAN or Sunjet II that all aimed at fostering international cooperation regarding aerospace R&T.
