Government of Canada announces funding for the Composites Research Network at UBC

CRN LogoThe pan-western Composites Research Network (CRN) is a major new initiative to support the transition of composites design and manufacturing capability, in the form of knowledge based best practice documents, to the industrial base in British Columbia and Western Canada. Working closely with a number of organizations across the west, the CRN will bridge the divide between the strengths of academic research and the needs of industrial practice. A state of the art facility with a wide range of design, manufacturing, and testing equipment and resources will also support the activities of the CRN team across the west.  For more information visit the CRN website.
