Multi-Criteria Supply Chain Design and Management Tool for Food Convergent Innovation in Dairy Business - Year 2

This project will develop new operational management systems by combining the elements of Lean, Agile, Green, Resilient and Nutrition (LAGRN) management of the dairy supply chain. The supply chain of Parmalat Canada will be used as a case study. This study is particularly significant for a company like Parmalat Canada, as it is trying to accommodate the conflict and convergence of elements of LAGRN aspects of the supply chain.

Qualitative Data Collection for Development of an Electronic Application to Promote Home-Based Self-Care in Older Heart Failure Patients: Patient and Informal Caregiver Perspectives

Heart failure (HF) is one of the leading causes of hospitalization and rehospitalization in older adults, yet the majority of HF-related readmissions are preventable if patients can manage their treatment at home. One method to help patients who require extra assistance in following their treatment is through mHealth applications. However, these applications are not usable for many older patients due to their complicated design.

Embedding Project

The Embedding Project is a public-benefit research project that relies on strong social science research methods to bring together thoughtful sustainability intrapreneurs from across industries and around the world, and harnesses their collective knowledge to develop rigorous and practical guidance that benefits everyone. This internship will offer an MBA student the opportunity to gain experience in both practice and research, while learning from leaders in the field.

Optimizing the design and implementation of technology education programs to advance skills and diversity in information and communications technology (ICT) in Canada

There is ample evidence that increasing Canada’s innovation, productivity and competitive advantage depends on expanding its skilled digital workforce to both implement and adopt innovative technologies. Despite the pressing need to increase the digital skills and participation of underrepresented groups in information and communications technology (ICT) industry and programs to diversifying computer science, the numbers have remained persistently low. While some initiatives have demonstrated success, often it is transient and not sustained.

Social Media Impact Tool: Measuring ROI for Social Media Engagement

Currently there are no effective tools to capture and measure return on investment (ROI) in social media in conjunction with more traditional data points that come from sources such as Flyer Tracking and Point of Sale (POS) systems.

Network Traffic Classification for Cyber Threat and Malware Detection

Bell’s Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) team is collaborating with academic institutions in order to further research and develop cyber security analytics for the protection of critical infrastructure and data. The focus of this research is to create and leverage a traffic classification project specifically for network security purposes. This research to design distributed algorithms fast enough for analyzing massive high-dimensional
data generated by network traffic to detect cyber threats/ attacks and anomaly in the network.

Benefits of VaR for capital management process of credit unions.

PRO Financial Solutions (PRO) is looking to investigate the benefits of actively including Value at Risk (VaR) in the capital management process of credit unions. Whereas Earnings at Risk (EaR) is a well-established risk measure, VaR still lacks understanding among credit unions. In this research project, the intern will illustrate the relationship between EaR and Duration of Equity, a VaR proxy, and therefor explain VaR in terms of EaR ? a number credit unions are more familiar with.

Strategy and legitimation in blockchain innovations and multisided markets

This research project will work with Canadian start-up 6Sensmatic in two areas: building a digital marketing platform and exploring strategic opportunities related to the blockchain; a digital ledger technology that underpins cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin. First, the intern will help 6Sensmatic design, develop, prototype and analyze a novel digital marketing platform that will connect firms to social media influencers that can advertise their products.

Advancing Data Science Research for Social Good

Due to rapid development of technology, such as the Internet of Things, collecting data is easier and cheaper than ever before. As a result, municipal governments and urban centres across Canada are being inundated with data—data that have potential to improve public service. Despite this, local governments do not have enough data expertise to extract insight from these overwhelming datasets, which are often unstructured and “dirty” (i.e., incomplete, inaccurate, and/or erroneous).

Electric bus demonstration and integration trail

Electrification of transit vehicles is a part of Ontario’s long-term strategy to reduce transportation-related GHG emissions. However, transit agencies and utility/local distribution companies face significant technological and operational hurdles in integrating “off the shelf” electric bus technologies. This project aims to overcome the social and technical challenges associated with a lack of international standardization for overhead charging systems.
