Published by Brad Fougere on January 30, 2015

Canadian Manufactures & Exporters British Columbia and Canada Makes agreed to a new partnership agreement on additive manufacturing with Emily Carr University of Art + Design’s Material Matters. The announcement was made at the 3D Printing Forum held at Emily Carr University Jan 29.

"CME BC welcomes these partnerships between public and private institutions as a way of helping BC manufacturing," said Marcus Ewert-Johns, CME BC vice-president. "Additive manufacturing is quickly becoming key to innovation for manufacturers and CME looks forward to the creation of this hub for innovation that will mobilize leading edge design in manufacturing."

Material Matters is a faculty-led Research Cluster at Emily Carr University of Art + Design. This new partnership allows for a convergence of academia and industry, providing leadership at the forefront of material exploration and digital making in Canada and British Columbia.

The Material Matters Research Cluster occupies a unique position within traditional academic infrastructure as they are framed by creative methodologies and technological innovation. Driven by both Emily Carr University faculty-led research interests and those of the University’s applied research partners, the Material Matters team caters to a convergence of interests on 3D printing/additive manufacturing technologies and methods. By working with both private enterprise and faculty-led inquiry, Material Matters operates as a gateway to open inquiry in material science and conditional discovery.

CME's Canada Makes is a network of private, public, academic, and non-profit entities dedicated to promoting the adoption and development of additive manufacturing in Canada. The network covers a broad range of additive manufacturing technologies including 3D printing, reverse engineering 3D imaging, medical implants and replacement human tissue, metallic 3D printing, 3D printing with electronics embedded and more.
