Increase the amount of funding for applied research programs that support partnerships between Canadian companies and polytechnics and colleges

Question:How can colleges play a larger role in the innovation ecosystem?
on 08/18/2016







A hallmark of applied research at polytechnics is that it is industry driven and provides solutions for business and industry. Through their infrastructure and sector experts, institutions can work with small and medium-sized enterprises to develop new products or technologies or adapt existing products to address their current challenges. By increasing the amount of support for initiatives such as Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada’s Engage, Applied Research and Development, and College University Idea to Innovation programs, the Government of Canada can help small and medium sized-enterprises to more readily access these resources.
