Research at GBC encourages innovation in Ontario, one project at a time.
Solving industry challenges.
Looking at industry, faculty and students as equal players in the innovation-to-market cycle, Research & Innovation at George Brown empowers our partners to take part in economically and educationally meaningful projects and collaborations that enhance local innovation and community well-being. Matching our industry partners with faculty expertise, the RI operates as the single hub of access to highly qualified and skilled personnel, state-of-the-art facilities and funding.
Your R&D team for hire.
No matter what size your company is, building your own in-house R&D department can be a substantial investment. So let us be your R&D. Our partners access new technologies, state of the art equipment and facilities and tap into our college-wide expertise, for a fraction of the cost of an in-house department.
Tap into our networks.
Research and Innovation is aligned with a vast innovation network across Ontario made up of academic institutions, community partners and industry experts. If we can’t help you, we know who can.
Find fresh talent.
We work with a deep pool of cross-college expertise, recruiting our faculty and students in key investigative roles. This means our partners tap into a range of research capabilities and resources to solve research challenges, from prototyping to branding to everything in between.
Keeping IP with Industry.
Our approach is very IP-friendly—we prioritize keeping intellectual property with our partners. We can also connect you to other resources beyond the college if necessary to complete your project.
