CARIC and NSERC, together with the European Commission, launches three collaborative research projects on crucial research areas for the aerospace sector

The Consortium for Aerospace Research and Innovation in Canada(CARIC) and Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) are pleased to announce the launch of three collaborative research projects with the European Commission. The approved research projects include the following:

• Additive Manufacturing Optimization and Simulation Platform for repairing and re-manufacturing of aerospace components – AMOS; 

• Electromagnetic Platform for lightweight Integration/Installation of electrical systems in Composite Electrical Aircraft – EPICEA; 

• Super-IcePhobic Surfaces to Prevent Ice Formation on Aircraft – PHOBIC2ICE.

These research projects are the result of extensive dialogue between Canadian and European experts, requiring the close cooperation of 30 partners, half from Canada and half from Europe, and involving eight countries, including France, the United Kingdom, Poland, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Spain and the Netherlands.

Denis Faubert, President and CEO of CARIC, applauds this collaboration with major international organizations and extols its benefits for the Canadian aerospace industry. "CARIC is proud to be part of a league of major global players in pursuit of excellence worldwide. The innovation of Canadian business has been recognized and, coupled with European expertise, will be propelled even further, contributing to our country's technological footprint," said Mr. Faubert.

"Canada's world-class aerospace industry is important to the Canadian economy as both an investor in innovation and a creator of high-skilled jobs across the country," said the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development. "The Government of Canada welcomes today's announcement and remains committed to supporting such collaborations as a way of inspiring new, innovative technologies that will help Canada continue its leadership in the aerospace industry."

"NSERC is pleased to be involved in this important partnership with CARIC and the European Commission. These three projects will accelerate academia-industry collaboration between Canada and the European Union. Moving towards 2020, NSERC will continue to build multi-lateral, international science-based partnerships. Going global in research and innovation is an important aspect of NSERC's strategic plan," said Dr. B. Mario Pinto, NSERC President.
