Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE) is launching a new $5 million program that aims to develop innovative new technologies, products and services to enhance Ontario’s public education system. The AdvancingEducation program will support up to 10 projects connecting Ontario’s English and French public elementary and high schools, and post-secondary institutions with Ontario companies to test early market interest and demonstrate innovative products and technologies in an education setting. This is offered by OCE in partnership with Ontario’s Ministry of Government and Consumer Services (MGCS).
Expressions of interest are now being accepted with selected full proposals due in June. The first round of five successful applications will be announced and begin work in September.
OCE is holding a partnering forum to bring together the education sector, industry and academic partners to learn more about the program and foster project collaborations.
