June 25, 2014

Western University's Collider Centre for Technology Commercialization (Collider) has officially opened in London, ON. The Collider is a “centre for commercialization of advanced manufacturing technology and will provide manufacturers with industrial research space, business services, contract research services and access to research staff and expertise, as well as production and testing equipment.” WesternU researchers will have opportunities to collaborate with businesses from Canada and around the globe, with Collider anticipated to be a go-to centre for manufacturing research and innovation in North America. The project was supported by a 2012 investment from the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario. “The Collider represents a huge step forward for research and innovation in Canada,” said WesternU’s VP Research John Capone. “It is a bridge between research and industry, uncovering the next generation of discoveries.” Canada News Release |WesternU News | London Metro
