Our Mission

The LAB2FAB bi-annual meeting provides a platform for industry, academic-based fabrication and characterization centres, and government labs to collaborate in overcoming their R&D challenges. Our goal is to help all parties build their capacity and expertise to increase Canadian competitiveness in manufacturing of microsystems and nanotechnology innovations. 


LAB2FAB focuses on building partnerships and cooperation among academic, industry and government stakeholders to achieve high-value outcomes. Organized by CMC Microsystems in cooperation with many open-access academic based labs across Canada, this workshop allows for alignment of industry priorities with academic research and initiatives
