National Research Council of Canada partners with leading Canadian research organizations
“Our government recognizes that when diverse points of view are brought together in research to discover and innovate, we all benefit. These NRC collaboration centres are bringing the best and the brightest together to support the next generation of research leaders and help ensure that our health, environment, communities and economy thrive.”
— The Honourable Kirsty Duncan, Minister of Science and Sport
"This collaboration centre brings together leading researchers to form a joint team and make significant advances in mathematical sciences for Canadians. We are proud to partner with the Fields Institute and look forward to the success of this exciting collaboration."
— Iain Stewart, President, National Research Council of Canada
“Collaborating with the Government of Canada’s largest research organization is inspiring. By combining our strengths in advanced mathematics with the NRC’s unsurpassed reputation for excellence in biological sciences and engineering, we can continue solving industrial challenges in health, energy, connectivity, advanced manufacturing, and more.”
— Ian Hambleton, Director, Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences
Founded in 1992, the Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences is an internationally renowned centre for mathematical collaboration, innovation and learning. Every year the Fields Institute welcomes over 4,000 visitors from across the globe, offering unique opportunities for research and knowledge exchange.
Prior to today, 3 other NRC collaboration centres have been launched:
o The Centre for Research and Applications in Fluidic Technologies (CRAFT), formed with the University of Toronto. This is a national hub for in vitro diagnostics, regenerative medicine, and precision medicine
o The CIC-NRC Cybersecurity Collaboration Consortium (CNCCC), formed with the University of New Brunswick’s Canadian Institute for Cybersecurity
o The NRC-Waterloo Collaboration on Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, and Cybersecurity, formed with the University of Waterloo
The Karluk Collaboration Space at Memorial University, which will lead innovation in ocean engineering, technology, and science is launching on June 28, 2019.
The National Research Council of Canada is the Government of Canada’s largest research organization. It is a key part of the Innovation and Skills Plan and of Budget 2018’s commitment to supporting Canada’s researchers to build a more innovative economy.
