The Consortium for Aerospace Research and Innovation in Canada (CARIC, Montréal, QC) and Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC, Ottawa, Canada) have launched 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.

 “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 Denis Faubert, president and CEO of CARIC.
