A northern New Brunswick college has been named one of the best research institutions in Canada for the 11th year in a row.
Collège Communautaire du Nouveau-Brunswick received the recognition from Research Infosource, which recognizes outstanding efforts in 2022 by the Top 50 colleges and polytechnics across the country.
The college says INNOV, its applied research and innovation network, ranked seventh in its category for projects completed.
It also ranked 12th for the percentage of private sector investment dedicated to applied research, innovation and technology transfer.
“These results demonstrate the importance we place on meeting the innovation needs of New Brunswick businesses, said Daniel Laplante, director of INNOV, in a statement.
“It is also the result of the hard work of our team of researchers and technicians.”
Launched in 2005, CCNB says INNOV has contributed to the development of Atlantic businesses and communities, with expertise in areas like agriculture, bioprocessing, environment, robotics and artificial intelligence.
Laplante says INNOV’s goal is to maintain its place among Canada’s top research-intensive colleges and support provincial businesses in their innovation and applied research projects.
