February 23, 2011

In Polytechnics Canada's submission to the federal government's review of federal support to research and development, one of the main recommendations is to foster more effective collaboration between all PSE institutions in federally funded industry-facing research projects and conduct coordinated marketing and outreach to education industry about academic-business collaboration. The other main recommendation is to open up tri-council industrial internships and summer employment programs to college students and graduates, thereby levelling the playing field and increasing the talent pool from which industry can select.
