(TCT) The University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada has received $27 million, as well as ‘in-kind’ support, to get its Multi-Scale Additive Manufacturing Lab up and running with state-of-the-art equipment and processes. Of that $27m, $8.9m was invested by the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev Ontario), and $6.2m came from the Government of Ontario. One of the key goals of the lab is to promote the adoption of industrial additive manufacturing.
“Additive manufacturing is poised to fundamentally change the way things are made,” said Feridun Hamdullahpur, president and vice chancellor at the University of Waterloo. “Fuelled by a culture of innovation and backed by broad expertise in the advanced manufacturing sector, we look forward to playing a key role with our partners in unlocking the potential of this exciting technology.”
