Katrin Mayrhofer, RACER Program Manager, Romanian National Research Institute
Overseeing the INCAS Romanian National Research Institute contribution to Europe’s RACER high-speed helicopter, Katrin Mayrhofer plans, monitors and coordinates technical-related tasks with government and industry players in Bucharest. She recalled, “When I left Germany and Airbus, there were voices who questioned why I would go to Romania. I think in Western Europe we didn’t pay too much attention to what is happening in Romania. To be honest. I wasn’t aware of the old and rich history Romania has in aerospace. I think Romania provides everything you need for the aerospace industry in the research environment.”
