RLS-Sciences Projects

There are areas where the seven members share existing competencies and excellence in science and innovation. In order to leverage the RLS network, RLS-Sciences designated four thematic areas where there is the most potential for cooperation.


Digitalisation is a global trend and has a strong impact on society, politics, and business. The main objective is to jointly generate knowledge to better understand the unprecedented societal challenges induced by the new digital technologies. At a later stage, the expert group will consider the elaboration of new ethical, regulatory, and security guidelines to govern the digital changes.

Global Aerospace Campus

In order to strengthen the specialized training of aerospace engineers, researchers and experts from industry are coming together to build a new training platform with virtual and in-person components. The objective is to create a leading teaching platform in aerospace, and to improve the visibility of aerospace research activities within the RLS Network and internationally, helping release research results faster and reducing the distance between teaching and research.

Small Satellites

The main objective is to promote technology leadership through multilateral cooperation in the field of very small satellites. The RLS regions have the necessary expertise: they can either contribute a full satellite or key components. Their cooperation will maintain research and training excellence in their RLS network, and provide a regional advantage in the increasing international science and innovation competition around small satellites.

Due to their unique geographical composition spanning five continents, and in accordance with their research profiles, the RLS regions represent strong potential in this field. Together, the RLS regions can cover all aspects of energy, from production to usage, monitoring to efficiency. The RLS network brings together complementary strengths in energy research to be shared and further developed in a joint effort. Read more here.
