NL invests in Centre for Research and Innovation to support skills development in tech

The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador has invested $634K into the Centre for Research and Innovation—a partnership between Memorial University, College of the North Atlantic, and Corner Brook Pulp and Paper—to support skills development in the technology sector over the next three years. The centre will use the funds to design and launch eight micro-credentials and four certificates that will address the province’s tech workforce shortages. The first year of funding will support program development, while the second and third years will support program implementation.
