ADVANCED MATERIALS MOVING FORWARD

CALL FOR PROJECTS

RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT (R-D) IN ADVANCED MATERIALS

GOAL

To support collaborative research and development (R & D) in advanced materials, PRIMA Québec is launching a new call for projects. This funding program was designed to help establish collaborations between industry and the research community (universities, CCTT or public research centers).

Advanced material can be defined as any new or significantly improved material or material that provides a significant performance advantage (physical or functional) compared to commonly used conventional materials.

Submitted projects must clearly present the impact of the projects on research, training and economic development.

The technologies targeted by this call for projects concern all types of application sectors:

  • The formulation and development of advanced materials such as: micro / nanoparticles, fibers, engineered wood, biomaterials, concrete, polymer, composite, multifunctional materials, glass, ceramics, metals and alloys, semiconductors;
  • The integration of these materials into finished or semi-finished products;
  • Advanced processes such as additive manufacturing, surface treatments, multiphysics simulation, modeling, composites and / or polymer shaping;
  • Characterization instruments for advanced materials.

Letter of intent: date to be confirmed.
