Canadore receives funding to implement RI 4.0 initiative


Canadore College has received $750K in federal funding to implement the Responsive Innovation 4.0 (RI 4.0) initiative in order to enhance the regional innovation ecosystem. As part of this initiative, Canadore’s Innovation Center for Advanced Manufacturing and Prototyping (ICAMP) will undertake research projects to help develop and commercialize products, processes, services, and technologies. “This is about preserving what we have and making life better for not only this generation but the next one,” said Canadore President George Burton. “That’s through application of technology, developing new products and processes, so that our products processes are sought after not only the boundaries of Canada but worldwide.” The funding is part of a larger $3.2M investment from FedNor into initiatives in the North Bay region.
