June 28, 2019

Niagara College has received $250K to help 25 companies in the advanced manufacturing, food and beverage, and agriculture environment technologies sectors solve innovation challenges related to technology adoption. A release explains that the businesses will work with Niagara’s Agriculture & Environmental Technologies Innovation Centre, Canadian Food and Wine Institute Innovation Centre, and Walker Advanced Manufacturing Innovation Centre. "We’re grateful to OCE for this grant, which will help SMEs gain a competitive edge in their field," said Marc Nantel, Niagara’s VP of Research, Innovation & Strategic Initiatives. "At the same time, it allows students the opportunity to translate the skills they’ve learned in the classroom into real-world partnerships with industry." Niagara (ON)
