Embraer says it is forming “innovation teams” in Silicon Valley and in Boston to explore business collaborations with tech startups, investors, academia and corporations, as it looks to develop its next generation of airliners, business jets and perhaps new types of aircraft that we can only guess at. As part of the push to boost innovation at the Brazilian company, Embraer is forming a Global Business Center at its U.S. headquarters in Melbourne, Florida. It will be connected to and directly participate with the company's engineering departments in São José dos Campos, Brazil, as new aircraft are imagined. Antonio Campello, who is currently the Director of Corporate Innovation, will lead the initiative, reporting directly to Embraer’s CEO, Paulo Cesar Silva, when the center starts operations within the next month.
