National Research Council of Canada (NRC) Mississauga

The NRC Mississauga research facility is part of the Canadian Campus for Advanced Materials Manufacturing, a joint initiative between the NRC and the Xerox Research Centre of Canada. This facility will focus on technologies for accelerating discovery and innovation in new materials, most prominently AI-driven robotics experimental platforms termed “Material Acceleration Platforms” or self-driven labs.

The advanced materials research facility in Mississauga is the NRC’s first physical research presence in the Greater Toronto Area. The new facility acts as a catalyst to accelerate the development of advanced materials technologies and their commercialization in disruptive new products. Together with industry, academia, and other government department (OGD) partners, the facility establishes and operates a national innovation platform, supporting and undertaking foundational research and development (R&D) to develop new materials, scaling up their production, and de-risking and demonstrating their application.
