ULI was created to initiate a new type of interaction between NASA Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate (ARMD) and the U.S. university community, where American universities take the lead, build their own teams, and set their own research paths.  This initiative seeks new, innovative ideas that can support the NASA ARMD portfolio. + Learn More


The current Aeronautics group is comprised of distributed multi-institutional, multi-disciplinary research teams to address a broad range of cutting-edge aeronautics research questions. Specifically, virtual collaboration is our key component in fostering collaboration by way of state of the art Mezzanine rooms and live streaming services.

University Leadership Initiative (ULI)

This initiative allows universities and university-led partnerships to provide strategic leadership that advances ARMD’s research objectives and promotes education of the next generation of engineers.


International Forum for Aviation Research (IFAR)

IFAR is the world's only aviation research establishment network. Our team is working with IFAR to create capabilities and events to support IFAR virtual events to enhance international collaboration in aeronautics research and connect the future leaders of the aviation industry.
