NAE: cluster of excellence!

NAE is the Norman network for aerospace, defense and security industry taking part in tomorrow's future projects.

A convivial circle of invested leaders


It is formed of big industrial groups, airports, military bases, SMI/SME, research laboratory and schools. NAE’s goal is to allow the aerospace, defense and security fields a major role in tomorrow’s future projects.

NAE gets a strong financial backing from Europe, the french state and the Normandy region. In return it provides a quality label in individual and collective projects.
