Durham’s ORSIE receives $2.1M in funding from CCI Mobilize grant


Durham College’s Office of Research Services, Innovation and Entrepreneurship (ORSIE) has received $2.1M in funding from the College and Community Innovation (CCI) program’s Mobilize grant to support Durham’s applied research centres. The funding will be provided over the next five years and will increase the research and innovation training opportunities available to students. “This funding is critical. It anchors everything that we do in all of our applied research centres,” said ORSIE Dean Debbie McKee Demczyk. “It allows us to maintain a competitive edge. We’ve got expert staff and researchers, and companies know that we’re here to support them and we’re not going anywhere.”
