Research at GBC encourages innovation in Ontario, one project at a time.
As we continue welcoming more students and employees to campus, we’re focused on keeping our learning settings as safe as possible while minimizing disruption.
The Delta variant of concern is hitting communities across the country, with its increased transmissibility and disease severity. Because of this, the college’s obligation to the health and safety of its community members has come into a much sharper focus.
We respect the expertise of the scientific community, and support the position that vaccines provide the best protection against COVID-19.
In order to protect our community, the college is implementing a revised COVID-19 Vaccination Policy effective immediately.
Solving industry challenges.
Looking at industry, researchers and students as equal players in the innovation-to-market cycle, Research & Innovation at George Brown empowers our partners to take part in economically and educationally meaningful projects and collaborations that enhance local innovation and community well-being. Matching our industry partners with faculty expertise, the RI operates as the single hub of access to highly qualified and skilled personnel, state-of-the-art facilities and funding.
Your R&D team for hire.
No matter what size your company is, building your own in-house R&D department can be a substantial investment. So let us be your R&D. Our partners access new technologies, state of the art equipment and facilities and tap into our college-wide expertise, for a fraction of the cost of an in-house department.
Tap into our networks.
Research and Innovation is aligned with a vast innovation network across Ontario made up of academic institutions, community partners and industry experts. If we can’t help you, we know who can.
Find fresh talent.
We work with a deep pool of cross-college expertise, recruiting our researchers and students in key investigative roles. This means our partners tap into a range of research capabilities and resources to solve research challenges, from prototyping to branding to everything in between.
Keeping IP with Industry.
Our approach is very IP-friendly—we prioritize keeping intellectual property with our partners. We can also connect you to other resources beyond the college if necessary to complete your project.
