St. Lawrence College Applied Research helps solve business problems. We help you get from Research and Development to production faster.

We connect our resources with industry and community organizations to produce applied research results that drive success.


How does it work?

First, contact the Applied Research Department, Industry Liaison, Ian Dick. Ian can help you identify the project’s scope, discuss feasibility, available expertise, resources, and funding opportunities.

You may be required to sign a non-disclosure agreement.

With everything in place, partners sign a project charter, and the project proceeds. A typical project runs 6 to 24 months.

Is Applied Research right for my company?

We know that everyday demands of running a business, plus lack of R&D resources (financial, human or otherwise), can sometimes limit your company’s ability to develop new or improved products and services or enter new markets. Whether it is incremental innovation or new or enhanced products or process development, St. Lawrence College, as your partner, can help your competitive edge.

We can:

  • BOOST your access to research and development opportunities;
  • CREATE better products, services, and jobs for Canadians; and
  • GENERATE sustainable revenue and sales growth.
