Composites Research Network



There are a number of ways to participate in CRN activities:


If your organization is involved in the manufacture or use of composite materials, you could benefit from participation in the CRN:

  • Solving specific technical challenges.
  • Learning from the best-practice knowledge base.
  • Technical training of personnel.

Contact us today to find out how.

Benefits of CRN participation


The CRN is focused on working with industry in Western Canada. However, the Network is connected nationally and globally, contributing to and benefiting from wider partnerships.

We would like to hear from you if your research interests relate to composite materials.


The capacity of the CRN to achieve its goal of providing effective support to the composites industry relies on adequate funding from a variety of partners including government and industry. We can do more with more. If you are interested in assisting the Network through direct financial or in-kind support, please contact us.

Companies participating in projects cover their own direct in-kind contribution costs. CRN will cover the cost of research and engineering staff, access to laboratories, technicians and integration of outcomes into KPDs. Contact us to find out about other funding support that may be available.
