FPC @ Western: New Research Facility
Today is the officially opening of the Fraunhofer Project Centre @ Western in London, ON, Canada. The facility is North America’s latest industry-scale production environment for developing, testing, validating and characterizing new lightweight materials and advanced manufacturing processes.
The Centre is a not-for-profit partnership between Western University and Germany’s Fraunhofer Society – Europe’s largest research and development organization, which has been credited with the invention and patent of the MP3, among many other discoveries. This is Fraunhofer’s first project centre in Canada.
The FPC @ Western is the also the first tenant of the new Advanced Manufacturing Park, which was provided to Western and Fanshawe College by the City of London to attract research and manufacturing ventures that use advanced manufacturing technologies and products.
