Nanotechnology Research - Initiatives and Networks
ArboraNano is the new Canadian Forest NanoProducts Network made possible through the Government of Canada’s Business-led Networks of Centres of Excellence program, FPInnovations and NanoQuebec. ArboraNano has brought together researchers from vastly different industries to research and develop products that will be based on a plant-derived nanomaterial – NanoCrystalline Cellulose (NCC).
CNBA is a nanotechnology association and facilitator. Its dual mission is to establish a Canadian National Nanotechnology Initiative including the creation of commercially-oriented nanotech hubs, the promotion of nanotechnology in Canada, and the promotion of Canadian nanotechnology capabilities internationally, and to develop major nanotechnology initiatives across the globe.
A non-profit research organization that brings together the various elements, across international boundaries, which are required for successfully transitioning exciting micro-nano technologies into aerospace systems.
CMC Microsystems provides microsystems researchers with industry-calibre design resources, access to state-of-the-art prototyping technologies, tools for test and support services to accelerate Canadian competitiveness through nano- and microelectronics.
As part of Alberta Innovates – Technology Futures, nanoAlberta is the single most dedicated authority on nanotechnology research, development and commercialization activities in the province.
A public-private partnership, NanoMEMS Edmonton is dedicated to fostering the development and growth of micro – and nano-based commercial enterprise across the region.
NanoQuebec, a not-for-profit corporation jointly funded by the governments of Quebec and of Canada plays a central role in the structuring and planning efforts in nanotechnology in Quebec.
British Columbia’s Nanotechnology Alliance
The National Research Council is playing a key role in Canada’s goal to be an integral part of the international quest for discoveries at the atomic and molecular level.
The student-run Nanoclub aims to promote nanotechnology at the University of Toronto.
