The Consortium for Research and Innovation in Aerospace in Quebec (CRIAQ) launches its 100th project MANU-601 entitled Additive Manufacturing Technologies for Aerospace Components. This project aims to generate knowledge about design, transformation and high-strength aluminium alloy properties for additive manufacturing of aerospace components.

MANU-601 project gathers all the elements that have made CRIAQ a success as a unique model of open innovation. This is a great example of collaborative research that brings together 13 partners including eight industrial partners which are the main OEMs, intermediate members and SMEs as well as four research institutes.

This major project will contribute to strengthening our aerospace industry competitiveness and will also benefit the supply chain since it will generate direct production of aerospace components.

Lastly, this project which involves partners located in Saskatchewan (Canadian Light Source) and in Ontario (Liburdi) is in line with the new dynamic that aims at developing a national aerospace research and collaboration network based on the collaborative research foundations of CRIAQ.
