Monday, March 9, 2020 – Sudbury – Collège Boréal
At the unveiling of its 2020-2025 Strategic Plan at its main campus in Sudbury, on Monday, March 9, 2020, Collège Boréal also inaugurated Research & Innovation Boréal (RIB), its new center of applied research for innovation.
Applied research projects are increasingly important at Collège Boréal and going forward, Research & Innovation Boréal will become the hub for research projects and initiatives.
A statement from the institution says, “Research & Innovation Boréal provides support to innovation projects in businesses and community organizations through research partnerships that draw upon the expertise of Boréal teachers and the talents of Boréal students.”
The range of expertise offered by Research & Innovation Boréal reflects and strengthens the college’s traditional fields of expertise. Some of the projects currently underway are in areas such as agricultural sciences, new agri-food technologies, biodiversity protection and health in general. Other projects deal with wider societal issues such as immigration, the Francophone community, Indigenous communities or early childhood education.
The research themes are always evolving. Focusing on priorities identified in collaboration with its partners, Research & Innovation Boréal responds to current and emerging challenges faced by clients in their development and modernization goals.
