The Europeans were the first to recognize that important research outcomes could be realized in the aerospace sector with Canada. Canada has a thriving aerospace business led by strong companies like Bombardier and Pratt and Whitney and universities who are doing world class research in aeronautics. It took a total of five years and the sustained interest of many key players who worked to identify common interests before success was realized. ERA-CAN II and ERA-CAN+ were instrumental in providing valuable advice through workshops to Canadian researchers on how they could access Framework Program (FP 6&7) and then Horizon 2020 funding.
