Canadian university consortium opens offices in India

February 14, 2012

A consortium of 9 Canadian universities and Indian partners, led by Carleton University, Ryerson University, and Simon Fraser University, is strengthening its position in India by opening 3 offices that provide space to focus on entrepreneurship and innovation. The office at Anna University's Centre for Urban Energy in Chennai is home to Ryerson's sister institute. This centre builds on the strong relationships that exist among the Canadian and Indian universities. Bilateral research and opportunities for students are key to addressing longer-term national priorities in both countries. The other Canadian institutions in the consortium are the Universities of Guelph, Waterloo, Ottawa, Laval, New Brunswick, and Manitoba. Carleton News Release
