NSERC’s HI-AM network expands international collaborations

August 17, 2019

The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC)’s network for Holistic Innovation in Additive Manufacturing (HI-AM) has announced a number of international collaborators in order to enhance its AM research and create training opportunities for the network’s students. 

The HI-AM network brings together seven Canadian universities to investigate the fundamental scientific issues associated with pre-fabrication, fabrication and post-fabrication of components by a range of Additive Manufacturing technologies, with a primary focus on structural metals.

NSERC welcomes the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials (IFAM), Bremen, Germany; Fraunhofer Institute for Material and Beam Technology (IWS), Dresden, Germany; University of Twente, Enschede, the Netherlands; and RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia to its HI-AM network as international collaborators. 

As part of its international collaborations, a selected group of its students will be given the opportunity to participate in research/training exchanges with international collaborators each year. NSERC will also host graduate students from various organisations at its research facilities in Canada.
