BCKDF makes $6.5M investment into 27 projects


The British Columbia Knowledge Development Fund (BCKDF) has made a $6.5M investment into 27 research projects at five postsecondary institutions. The institutions benefitting from the funding are Selkirk College, Simon Fraser University, the University of British Columbia, the University of the Fraser Valley, and the University of Victoria. The funding will support the establishment of the Experimental Ocean Climate Change Lab at UVic and the Centre for High-Pressure Research at UFV; introduce new supports for Selkirk’s Technology Access Centre; and support research projects that will investigate topics such as stem cells, food processing, transportation, and bacteria. These projects seek to grow the province’s economy, improve environmental management, support the health of those in the province, and more.
