College and Community Innovation Pilot Program mid-term review: NS3-63/2007E-PDF
« In the fall of 2002, NSERC Senior Management visited 19 community colleges across the country to learn more about the form, nature, and scope of applied research that is being carried out in Canadian colleges. Moreover, an understanding of the role colleges play in the overall innovation spectrum was sought. What was found was a range of research and innovation activity that was already contributing to the needs and opportunities of local industry. These activities at the colleges were generally not research as is typically supported by NSERC in universities, but included problem solving, prototype building, product development testing, and market studies, among other activities. NSERC concluded that the colleges have a significant role to play in building the innovative capacities of communities by helping firms commercialize new discoveries and adopt new technologies. This led to the development of the College and Community Innovation Pilot program »--Introduction, p. 1.
