Canada’s National Design Network (NDN) enables excellent multi-disciplinary research and complex prototype microsystems with the potential to be rapidly commercialized, positioning Canada to be a competitive player in all economic sectors.
The effectiveness of the NDN is dependent on the interactions between many individuals and organizations.
Over the 5 year period ending in 2012 Queen’s University’s participation in Canada’s National Design Network has resulted in:
How to participate in the National Design Network:
Getting started with the NDN only takes a few minutes. Simply visit www.cmc.ca and get an account. Accounts are free and will enable researchers to identify communication preferences as well as provide a username and password to enable sign in at the NDN Hub, which is the online home for Canada’s National Design Network. The Hub is a great resource for faculty and students and is the place to download information including recorded webinars and tutorials, provide comments and feedback on proposals and technology roadmaps, learn about upcoming events, interact with contacts from industry and academia as well as directly with microsystems engineers at CMC.
