Boeing will establish Boeing Research & Technology-Brazil, a research and technology center in Sao Paulo that will work with the country's leading researchers and scientists to develop aerospace technologies. Boeing Research & Technology-Brazil, which will open later this year, will serve as a hub for collaboration between Boeing and Brazilian R&D organizations, including government agencies, private-sector companies, and universities. Areas of research focus for the new center will include sustainable aviation biofuels, advanced air traffic management, advanced metals and bio-materials, and support and services technologies. Boeing Research & Technology-Brazil will be Boeing's sixth advanced research center outside the United States; the others are in Europe, Australia, India, China, and Russia. Brazil has Latin America's fastest-growing commercial aviation market. Boeing has forecasted that Brazil will need to purchase more than 1000 airplanes worth more than $100 billion in the next 20 years.
