The Government of Canada has invested almost $17M into 16 research infrastructure projects at 15 colleges from across Canada. Funding will support colleges in acquiring the labs and equipment necessary for projects focused on areas such as clean technology, mining, and agriculture. Projects receiving funding include Cégep de Trois-Rivière’s research on paper and cardboard products, Nova Scotia Community College’s development of hybrid electric and fuel cell systems, and Lethbridge College’s Advanced Post-Harvest Technology Centre. “Bringing industry partners together with researchers and students in spaces equipped with technology’s latest tools is a recipe for innovation and economic growth,” said Roseann O’Reilly Runte, President, Canada Foundation for Innovation. “This investment will enable bright ideas to be tested, applied and developed into new businesses in labs that have collaboration and partnerships at their core.” Globe Newswire (Canada) (National)
