Investment will create jobs, expand research and innovation
A joint federal-provincial investment in the University of Manitoba will help to better equip Canadians for the jobs of today and tomorrow.
The $36 million in funding, announced on Jan. 24, will support the development of the U of M Smartpark Innovation Hub, as well as the new Stanley Pauley Engineering Building.
The Smartpark Innovation Hub will be an information exchange centre that will encourage further partnerships between industry, government and university; include new space for the laboratories, provide rentable space for companies; and be home for the Park’s North Forge incubator.
Funding will also support the construction of the Stanley Pauley Engineering Building which will promote greater industry collaboration.
