The Nanocomposites and Mechanics Laboratory at UNB Fredericton is hosting a funding announcement on Friday, May 24 at 11:30 a.m. in Head Hall C25, as part of Transport Canada's Clean Transportation System Research and Development Program. Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada David Lametti and Fredericton MP Matt DeCourcey will be on hand to make the announcement.

The lab, led by Dr. Gobinda Saha, is working in the field of advanced materials design, manufacturing, testing/characterization, and modelling to develop innovative solutions to tackle industrial wear and premature material failure facing structural and non-structural components. 

The Clean Transportation System Research and Development Program supports needed research in the aviation, marine, and rail sectors. It gathers the technical information we need to develop evidence-based regulations and measures to reduce emissions, and achieve Canada’s goal of reducing GHG emissions.

All are welcome to attend this exciting announcement. For more information or to RSVP, please email
