The Composites Innovation Centre (CIC) Manitoba Inc. based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada and the Cooperative Research Centre for Advanced Composite Structures Limited (CRC-ACS) located in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to work together in the development and commercialization of composite materials and process technologies.
This agreement links the capabilities of both organizations to provide a broader experience base for their industrial partners.
“CIC is involved with numerous projects with industry covering many business sectors,” said Mr Sean McKay, CIC’s Executive Director. “Due to our size and focus on specific core competencies, it is unrealistic to be able to properly support all their needs with internal resources only. Having relationships with other composite experts such as CRC-ACS allows us to provide superior and expanded services to our customers, developing and implementing the latest materials and technologies that will provide them with a leg up on their competitors.”
“CRC-ACS and its member organisations are delighted to be linking up with one of North America’s leading composites development centres,” said Prof. Murray Scott, CRC-ACS Chief Executive Officer. “International collaboration is very important to us and this agreement gives us a new opportunity to further develop our network in partnership with CIC. Australia and Canada have much in common, including in the field of composite materials, and my colleagues are looking forward to working with CIC specialists in pursuing new opportunities in areas ranging from bio-composites to aerospace composite structures.”
The Composites Innovation Centre Manitoba Inc. is a not-for-profit corporation that is jointly sponsored by private industry and government. This organization works directly with industry, on industry sponsored projects that result in a measurable economic benefit to the project participants and the community. CRC-ACS receives significant support under the Australian Government’s Cooperative Research Centres Program, as well as from its eight core, three supporting and 14 associate members.
