CRI celebrates official opening


Corner Brook’s Centre for Research and Innovation (CRI) has celebrated its official opening. The centre was created by Memorial University, the College of the North Atlantic, and Corner Brook Pulp and Paper Ltd who received $8.9M to renovate a former pulp and paper mill building to house the new centre. CRI will support research and development, business diversification, and Newfoundland and Labrador’s culture of innovation and entrepreneurship. “The centre’s foci – innovation, creativity, research and training – will continue to strengthen collaboration between industry, post-secondary institutions, government and community partners for the benefit of this province and beyond,” said Memorial President Dr Vianne Timmons.
