Dal to enhance R&D capacity, industry collaboration with new facilities

October 3, 2016

Students, professors, and researchers at Dalhousie University will have the chance to work in state-of-the-art facilities thanks in part to a $32M investment from the federal government. The funding will go specifically toward the IDEA project, which will see the school create new facilities for hardware start-ups and entrepreneurship while renewing its hubs in clean tech, advanced manufacturing, and ocean tech. The project will see a matching $32M provided by Dal, as well as funds from private donors. “IDEA will set a new standard in engineering, architecture and planning education, elevating design-oriented technical education and research in Halifax to the global stage,” said Dal President Richard Florizone.
