Once again, we surveyed our members about their research activity to track the evolution of applied research at colleges and institutes, and support our advocacy efforts. Our latest report was launched in November and shows that colleges and institutes continue to play a fundamental role in supporting innovation in all sectors of the economy and across Canada.
Highlights from the report:
Colleges and institutes reported over 7300 research partnerships, the majority with SMEs. This led to more than 4400 new processes, products, prototypes and services, the large majority of which were completed within one year.
