CONSORTIUM FOR AEROSPACE RESEARCH AND INNOVATION IN CANADA (CARIC)
The Consortium for Aerospace Research and Innovation in Canada (CARIC) is a non-profit organization established in 2014 with the financial support of the Canadian Government.
- To facilitate communication and collaboration among aerospace companies, researchers and academics, and to provide financial support to collaborative R&D projects.
- To launch initiatives whose primary purpose is to serve as catalysts for collaboration to help overcome silo effects and promote faster, more relevant R&D.
CARIC’s open innovation approach focuses its activities on real-world issues, with the purpose of creating wealth for Canadians chiefly through the commercialization of world-class aerospace products. This approach also reinforces a sense of community and generates a more acute awareness of the industry’s capabilities, needs and challenges across the whole supply chain.
- Industry-focused R&D projects leading to innovative solutions
CARIC aims to be Canada’s key facilitator in aerospace research and development. It therefore provides strategic, financial and administrative support encouraging the Canadian aerospace industry and research community to increasingly collaborate and achieve excellence through research and innovation.
CARIC’s activities are supported in its regional offices with the collaboration of existing provincial associations in Vancouver, Winnipeg, Toronto, Montreal, and Halifax. Together, they ensure regional awareness and provide a presence coast-to-coast.
THRIVE THROUGH INNOVATION: JOIN CARIC’S COMMUNITY
With CARIC, the Canadian aerospace community benefits from highly leveraged multi-party collaborative R&D projects in three ways: highly innovative solutions, highly qualified manpower and a reinforced network. Industries, universities, colleges, research centers, federal and provincial governments and a host of aerospace and technical organizations are invited to join CARIC’s program and activities.
