The Innovation Supercluster Initiative is investing $950 million to support business-led innovation superclusters across Canada. The Advanced Manufacturing Supercluster (AMS) has been established in Ontario and is led by the nonprofit organization NGen Canada (Next Generation Manufacturing Canada). NGen matches manufacturing companies with new technologies like IoT, AI, 3D printing and robotics to drive advanced manufacturing in Canada. This presentation will update us on the latest news from NGen, getting registered in the database, project funding requirements, a Pitch Day overview and more.
