In 2016, TIC received an honourable mention in the
FOYA awards, which was the first
time an academic institution had received such an accolade, reinforcing the class of facility
offered by CMAC.

The FOYA award is a fantastic achievement for CMAC and our partners, in particular as
it recognises the unique world class facilities and high quality collaborative environment that
has now been established in TIC to support our research and training activities. CMAC look
forward to continuing to extend our collaborative approach and welcome new partners to come
and work alongside us within the new CMAC National Facility
