Research lands at MaRS: GBC there with Tenet Computing

George Brown College students and faculty presented at yesterday's launch of the MaRS Regional Innovation Centre, supporting our applied research work with Tenet Computing. George Brown College and Bridgepoint Health partnered with Tenet Computer Group Inc. to test and implement Tenet’s emergency management software. Tenet’s PINpoint™ for BlackBerry® application facilitates cooperation and coordination during emergencies by ensuring that users always have up-to-date information stored in their BlackBerry smartphones, including critical documents and contact lists. Funding for GBC's involvement is from our CCIP award.

The MaRS Regional Innovation Centre is part of the Ontario Network of Excellence - the Ontario Innovation System that support business innovation and market entry for academic inventions.
