March 11, 2014

CANARIE, Canada's Advanced Research and Innovation Network, has partnered with the Association of University Research Parks (AURP) Canada to offer cloud computing technology to the nearly 1,400 knowledge-based businesses located in research and technology parks. These businesses will have access to CANARIE’s Digital Accelerator for Innovation and Research (DAIR) program, which provides free cloud-based computing, network and storage resources. “Going forward, the partners will look for other opportunities to increase the connectivity between industry and academia through additional programming that supports commercialization,” explains a CANARIE news release. For example, Algonquin College, New Brunswick Community College, and Red River College are using DAIR’s free cloud resources to support applied research alliances between colleges and local businesses.
