The Aerospace & Defence Expo 2012 took place at the 50th Abbotsford International Airshow on August 9th and CRN was there to promote the benefits of the new Network. CRN representatives met with a wide range of personnel from industry, government and other universities. Navid Zobeiry, Research Associate and Team Lead: Manufacturing and Testing, CRN, was delighted by the response, “It was great meeting new people within and outside the composites field and observing the high level of interest in the Network”. Dr. Göran Fernlund, Technical Director, CRN, gave a well-attended presentation entitled “Composites Research Network: Transitioning Knowledge into Practice”, providing an overview of the Network, its goals and how to get involved.
This one day aerospace and defence event is held annually. It presents a strong networking and business development opportunity for the sector including manufacturers and users of composite materials.
