Southern Ontario Network for Advanced Manufacturing Innovation (SONAMI)

The Southern Ontario Network for Advanced Manufacturing Innovation (SONAMI) is a network of post-secondary research institutions that have come together through their respective research centres, in an effort to grow the quality and quantity of applied research innovation in the Southern Ontario advanced manufacturing cluster. Moreover, SONAMI collaborates with small- and medium-sized companies to turn innovations into commercialized products.

SONAMI’s institutions include Niagara College’s Walker Advanced Manufacturing Innovation Centre (WAMIC), Mohawk College’s Advanced Manufacturing Innovation Centre (AMIC), Sheridan College’s Centre for Advanced Manufacturing and Design Technologies (CAMDT), Conestoga College’s Smart Manufacturing and Advanced Recycling Technologies (SMART) Centre, Lambton College’s Lambton Manufacturing Innovation Centre (LMIC), Fanshawe College’s Canadian Centre for Product Validation (CCPV), and McMaster University’s McMaster Manufacturing Research Institute (MMRI).
