Industry connects with research in CEI

More than 100 people met yesterday in the industrial courtyard at the Ed Lumley Centre for Engineering to learn more about how local businesses can connect with university researchers to help make them more competitive.

“I’m really impressed with the depth of knowledge and the opportunity for potential partnerships,” said Kevin O’Connor, a software development manager at Vista Print, one of 34 local companies registered for the event.
