Project Needs


A number of SME and Public Research
Centres

were
initially approached by sub
-
project industrial leaders to
ascertain their desire to participate and to perform a
preliminary evaluation of their capabilities


Sub
-
projects have since been progressing from general
concepts to more precise definitions


Knowledge and technical capability gap analyses are
taking place to identify which specific technology
development and demonstrations are needed to fill the
identified knowledge and technological capability gaps


SME and Public Research
Centres

best suited to the needs
of the sub
-
projects will be selected by industrial leaders

It
is

possible
that

not all SME and Public Research Centres
that

were

initially

approached

by
industrial

leaders
will

participate
.

Economic Benefits


Advanced research conducted in Quebec, with
Quebec SME and Public Research Centers


Approximately 75% of $150 M will be spent in Quebec


Using and growing knowledge of local workforce


Using and growing manufacturing capabilities of local
supply chain


A more innovative and competitive industry and
supply chain able to offer an enlarged portfolio of
products and services


To the Quebec aerospace manufacturers


To international aerospace manufacturers


To other industries (trains, automobiles, etc…)

29

Conclusions


Aerospace is a strategic sector for Quebec



With financial support from the Quebec
Government, our industry is mobilizing to develop
innovative design and manufacturing technologies
and competitive on
-
board systems



In the process, we will strengthen our local supply
chain, raise the overall competitiveness of our
industry and reduce its impact on the environment
