Innovation is the lifeblood of every economy
Innovation creates new products and services. It improves processes, increases productivity and generates efficiencies. It responds to challenges such as climate change, pandemics and international competitiveness.
The Ontario Collaborative Innovation Platform (OCIP) is a new matchmaking program that connects Ontario companies with expert researchers at Ontario’s postsecondary institutions to help businesses innovate and get to market more quickly and confidently. It creates opportunities for institutions to bring their vast research capabilities to bear on real-world challenges.
