The Carrefour québécois de la fabrication additive (CQFA) is a structuring project that relies on sharing and consultation to stimulate the development of Quebec’s additive manufacturing (AM) ecosystem. The CQFA targets all of the ecosystem’s stakeholders (manufacturers, researchers, professionals, etc.) while focusing on the sector’s Quebec-based companies. It addresses every AM-related process and material, along with every aspect involved, including application, research and development, financing, entrepreneurship and technology adoption, along with training and skills development.
Driven by PRIMA Québec and its collaborators, the CQFA is managed by a volunteer committee that represents Quebec’s additive manufacturing ecosystem.
