The British automaker manufacturer, Rolls-Royce, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Hasso Plattner Institute, the German digital engineering university in Postdam.

The partnership aims to expand on the institutions’ digital capabilities, focusing on four key aspects: Artificial Intelligence, Design Thinking, E-Learning, and Data Security.

In the AI sub-section, the companies aim to analyse in-service data and pioneer AI within pattern recognition to enable precision and customised maintenance for customer operational efficiency.

In regards to Design Thinking, the partnership will use the institutes experience with creative problem solving and will integrate it into the Rolls-Royce’s future training.


E-Learning will target digital training and knowledge transfer within global companies, whilst Data Security will look at data from engines, and research into future data flow and organisation.

Both Rolls-Royce and Hasso Plattner aim to apply findings from the MoU to the field of aerospace – for research, development, production, and services.

“We believe that working with academics, OEM partners, niche start-ups and a broad range of other trusted third-parties this kind of collaborative innovation will unlock the most potential value from data,” stated Alastair McIntosh, head of Technology Programmes for Civil Aerospace at Rolls-Royce, and Director of Engineering and Technology at Rolls-Royce Deutschland.
