JDI Roundtable on Manufacturing Competitiveness in New Brunswick

The University of New Brunswick wishes to thank J.D. Irving, Limited, for supporting the JDI Roundtable on Manufacturing Competitiveness in New Brunswick. The Roundtable's research and outreach programs have turned the dial on awareness of manufacturing's growth capacity as a cornerstone of the New Brunswick economy.

Building on this early success, UNB is investing in R&D and innovation to improve manufacturing competitiveness with productivity advancements. Manufacturing will continue to be a research focus at UNB through the work of the Marine Additive Manufacturing Centre of Excellence, the Ballistics and Mechanical Test Lab, the Wood Science Technology Centre and the Off-site Construction Research Centre.

For more information, contact UNB’s industry and government services group at partner@unb.ca.


Building on our strengths, looking toward the future

The Roundtable bridges evidence-based research and public engagement to grow the New Brunswick economy by engaging the public sector, government and academia.
