Saint-Jérôme, June 13, 2019 – Following the Government of Canada’s announcement of investments in research collaborations between colleges and entrepreneurs, the IVI is receiving funding from NSERC through its College and Community Innovation Program.
These investments will enable colleges, CEGEPs and polytechnics across Canada to collaborate with companies in their region to transform research and development results into new technologies for commercialization. This will also help stimulate local economies and train the next generation.
François Adam, Director General of the IVI is very pleased with this news and says that
“Through its support, NSERC has contributed to the IVI’s meteoric growth over the past five years, and this renewal will enable us to continue this momentum by giving us the means to initiate structuring projects with our industrial partners.
