National Research Council Of Canada
Integrated Manufacturing Technologies Institute .
The National Research Council Canada (NRC) is the Government of Canada's leading resource for industrial research, development and technology-based innovation. At NRC’s world-class facilities located in London Canada, researchers are focused on developing innovative solutions for Canadian companies working in the automotive and construction sectors. NRC Automotive helps Canadian automotive companies meet the increasing costs and societal challenges faced by their industry by focusing on key research and development expertise. These include improving vehicle lightweighting using aluminium and biomaterials, enhancing the energy efficiency of propulsion systems, lowering the manufacturing cost of vehicle electrification, and reducing design times using interactive design-to-manufacture software. NRC Construction applies data/information management, modeling, and system simulation expertise to help industry develop technology-based solutions to reduce energy consumed by buildings and their operational costs.
Industrial Research Assistance Program
Located at IMTI, the Industrial Research Assistance Program (IRAP) is designed to help small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) meet the unique challenges they face in developing new products, processes and services. IRAP offers a range of services designed to help SMEs access key resources, expert advice, new technologies, testing facilities, and financial assistance.
