How PSE is driving innovation in Ottawa: Summerlee

January 15, 2018

“From areas such as software development and artificial intelligence to autonomous vehicles, aerospace and cybersecurity, Ottawa has built on its legacy as a telecommunications leader to become a trailblazer in forward-looking economic development,” writes Carleton University Interim President Alastair Summerlee. The author highlights a number of initiatives being undertaken by Carleton to spur innovation and economic growth in the Ottawa region and beyond. Summerlee writes further about the high level of co-operation between Ottawa PSE institutions in this regard, noting that “rather than compete with one another, Carleton University, the University of Ottawa, Algonquin College and La Cité Collégiale are working together and empowering students to do applied research and learn practical skills that mesh with private- and public-sector priorities.” Ottawa Citizen
