The Advanced Manufacturing Supercluster: Taking a Lead Advanced Manufacturing
The Advanced Manufacturing Supercluster is one of five Supercluster initiatives that will be funded by the federal government. The Supercluster provides a unique opportunity to leverage the technology and manufacturing strengths of Canada’s innovation corridor to help companies become world leaders in the adoption, scale-up, and production of advanced technologies in manufacturing.
It will leverage private and public funding to boost investments in:
- Groundbreaking Process Transformation: game changing technologies applied in today’s manufacturing;
- High Potential Technology Development: scaling Ontario technologies for next generation manufacturing; and
- Ecosystem Development: creating a network of support and services that accelerate technology adoption in manufacturing and generate new customers and scale-up opportunities for technology firms.
The Supercluster will help to address some of the competitive challenges facing both manufacturing and technology sectors in Canada. It will also create opportunities for collaborative research, training, and business development. The objective will be to transform manufacturing and business processes, build new technologies, and grow new industries – especially in the field of smart textiles and flexible electronics – in Canada.
