NGen announces funding for new advanced manufacturing projects


One of the projects to receive support focuses on photonic technology for navigation sensors

Ngen, an organisation that leads the Government of Canada’s Global Innovation Cluster for Advanced Manufacturing, has announced over $32.3 million in funding for 15 new advanced manufacturing projects. With industry contributions of $54.4 million, the 15 projects are valued at a total of $86.7 million.

One of the projects to win support looks at the “Scaling of Autonomous Navigation Sensors through Photonic Wirebonding.” It will be conducted by two Canada-based integrated photonics companies: One Silicon Chip Photonics and AEPONYX.

The announcement was made during NGen’s inaugural N3 Summit, a new showcase and strategy event aiming to promote Canadian leadership in advanced manufacturing.

“Our government is proud to collaborate with NGen to accelerate innovation and advancements in environmental sustainability, supply chain resilience, and health and security,” said François-Philippe Champagne, minister of innovation, science and industry. “Projects like these advance the development, adoption and scale-up of world-leading capabilities in Canadian manufacturing and technology and deliver important benefits to Canadians.”

Jayson Myers, CEO, Ngen, added: “The Innovation Cluster model is working - and the results speak for themselves. NGen is excited to build on our successes with another round of advanced manufacturing projects. Our role as an innovation catalyst is only possible because of the commitment from our industry and ecosystem partners, and the support of the federal government’s Global Innovation Cluster programme. Together, we’re building world leading advanced manufacturing capabilities in Canada – for the benefit of Canadians.”
