March 21, 2017

Sault College is making an $18.2M investment into a new facility called the Institute of Environment, Education and Entrepreneurship (iE3), reports Northern Ontario Business. iE3 will reportedly support new programming in the areas of natural environment, geographic information systems, and information and communications technology, and connect the private sector with critical resources on-campus, including professors, technicians, and students. “That was the idea behind having these groups of people together, so that they can really benefit from their own specific knowledges,” said Sault Manager of Applied Research and Innovation John Coccimiglio. “Because oftentimes innovation happens at the interface between two disciplines.” Construction is slated to be complete by the summer of 2018.
