Aluminum Cluster

Innovation, R & D and training

AluQuébec is supported by the unparallelled expertise of a network of centres devoted to research, development and training in fields associated with aluminium production and processing. This network includes universities and academic research groups, liaison centres, college centres for technology transfer, private and government laboratories and a sector workforce committee.

The combined expertise of these institutions of higher learning, laboratories, skilled workers and aluminium users is harnessed to develop powerful, innovative solutions to meet the needs of businesses who wish to incorporate aluminium into their products or production processes. Thanks to these institutions, Québec is the world capital of expertise in aluminium production, processing and usage.
