About Us

Additive manufacturing (AM) has the potential to change the entire manufacturing enterprise by 2030. Substantial progress has been made in recent years; however, there are several remaining challenges such as the high cost of feedstocks, repeatability and reliability issues with AM processes/products, and lack of accelerated simulation packages that have hindered the widespread industry adoption.

The NSERC/CFI Holistic Innovation in Additive Manufacturing (HI-AM) Network has been conceived to work on innovative solutions to address these challenges and to equip Canada for the era of Industry 4.0 and ‚Äúdigital-to-physical conversion.”

The University of Waterloo hosts the NSERC HI-AM Network, bringing together nineteen leading experts from seven universities across Canada.
