Strategic Plan and Frameworks

Our new Strategic Plan provides a bold vision for CCEM as a national research facility. It has been informed by feedback from the national user community, partners and CCEM management and builds on the successes and lessons from our previous Plan. The Governing Board has actively participated in shaping the plan. The strategic goals of CCEM over the next five years will strengthen CCEM’s position as a national electron microscopy research facility with international recognition for excellence that serves a growing and diverse national academic and industrial user base.

The development of the Plan has been inspired by a value proposition built on three pillars:

  • a national enabler of breakthrough materials research
  • a global leader in electron microscopy education and training
  • a provider of accessible specialized electron microscopy services

Through our EM research, training and services, we catalyze tomorrow’s materials innovations.
