Strategic Projects

Your company is committed to pushing the leading edge of innovation to advance your mid- to long-term R&D priorities — and a strategic partnership with U of T Engineering can get you there.

This level of partnership typically involves providing seed funding for a new research initiative in conjunction with support to grow our research capacity (e.g., through an Industrial Research Chair) in an area of strategic priority for your corporation. Strategic partnerships can also address goal-driven interests via collaborative research projects.

Strategic projects are flexible and customized to the interests and needs of our partners, some examples of strategic projects include:

  • Establishing a new Industrial Research Chair in an area relevant to your work
  • Supplying your equipment or products to our labs or courses to build brand awareness
  • Providing seed funding for new research initiatives
  • Supporting the purchase of new research equipment related to your interests
