Teledyne was connected to Mitacs... to prepare an application for funding of a large-scale research project valued at nearly $1.7M. The company matched the funds for 15 interns from the two universities to develop infrared technologies for the company’s latest products.
Research and development is expensive for a start-up to get into, but creative innovation is what’s meant to distinguish Indie Ink as a micro-publisher here in Canada. Partnering... through this project helped us to explore new territory as a start-up publisher and determine our next steps with this technology.
Held on November 18, 2014, the 4th Annual Mitacs Awards Reception celebrated the contributions of five emerging researchers and two exceptional leaders in the academic and business communities who are participating in Mitacs programs aimed at fostering research and innovation in Canada.
Globalink interns should try and make the most of this amazing opportunity by preparing for their respective projects before coming to Canada. Chances are that they will face some challenges throughout the course of their project as I did, but I advise them to stay motivated and figure out innovative ways to overcome these challenges.
Having received nearly 500 photographs from Globalink interns this summer, the 2014 Mitacs Globalink Photo Contest showcased the experiences of the world’s best and brightest as they took part in research at 37 Canadian universities. Congratulations to the winners!
It has been really good to see the strong relationship between researchers and companies in Nova Scotia. I am really happy that Mitacs has given us good connections to industry in Canada so we can see how our research would work in real life.
