Dal launches new Nova Scotia Product Design and Development Centre

September 2, 2014

Dalhousie University’s Faculty of Engineering last week celebrated the official opening of the new Nova Scotia Product Design and Development Centre (NSPDDC). The new centre represents the merging of two existing groups, the Innovation in Design Lab (iDLab) and the Product Research and Design Group (PRDG), in order to maximize the work being done individually by the 2 groups while further supporting research and development (R&D) and innovation in NS. The province supported the creation of the NSPDDC with a commitment of $85,000. “Finding ways to connect the private sector with the expertise and creativity of our universities will help make our businesses more competitive and profitable,” said Michel Samson, NS Minister of Economic and Rural Development and Tourism. “This centre can help our young, ambitious engineers gain valuable connections to local businesses and our small businesses reach their highest potential.” Dal News
