About The CQFA

Additive manufacturing (AM) is fuelling the breakthrough technologies that underly the digital transformation of industrial production. The Carrefour québécois de la fabrication additive (CQFA) was created in response to the Livre blanc sur la fabrication additive au Québec, the whitepaper on additive manufacturing in Quebec, unveiled by PRIMA Québec and its partners in March 2020. This structuring project focuses on collaboration and knowledge sharing to stimulate developments in the AM ecosystem. The CQFA offers networking opportunities for the ecosystem’s stakeholders (manufacturers, researchers, professionals, etc.), creating business opportunities and promoting AM’s contributions to the competitiveness of local businesses. Driven by PRIMA Québec and its collaborators, the CQFA is managed by a volunteer committee that brings together Quebec’s additive manufacturing ecosystem.
