Published on April 19 2012
Earlier this week, Rick Dykstra, MP for St. Catharines, announced partnerships between Brock University and 13 local small- and medium-sized businesses as part of the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario’s Applied Research and Commercialization initiative.
The FedDev funding for Brock, which was announced in November 2010, provides up to $750,000 to the University to partner with small and medium-size companies in areas such as product and process applied research, technology development, product testing, and piloting and problem solving.
The wide-ranging list of collaborative research projects includes pharmaceutical and multimedia companies, a winery, a manufacturer of high-performance skate boots and a developer of interactive storybooks for children, just to name a few.
