Delastek and Concordia’s Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering came away from this year’s ADRIQ (Association de la recherche industrielle du Québec) 2006 Prix Innovation awards, with the Prix Partenariat.
The Consortium for Research and Innovation in Aerospace in Quebec (CRIAQ) sponsored research project for which they were honoured involved the participation of Ecole Polytechnique, Bell Helicopter Textron Canada Inc, and Pratt and Whitney Canada.
The award winning CRIAQ project was an integral part of a much larger 2.2 million dollar research program which relied on the expertise of collaborators from the National Research Council’s Institute for Aerospace Research and Defense Research Establishment at Val Cartier.
In addition to realizing groundbreaking results in the fabrication of load-bearing components for aerospace industry applications, the partners’ synergistic efforts have provided training in composite technology for students, postdoctoral fellows, research associates and assistants.
A Synergy Award for Innovation was also recently presented to Concordia University and Bell Helicopter Textron Canada Ltd for their work related to Composite technology for aerospace applications.
