GBC Research #1 in College Research

This past week saw the release of the Research Infosource Canadian College Research rankings. GBC Research has climbed from third place in last year's rankings to first place this year in terms of research funding raised. We also placed first in research partnerships. This is due to dedicated hard work by the GBC Research office team and everyone at George Brown College who has been supporting research since our inception in 2007. You can read our press release here.

In other exciting news, GBC Research partner Clear Blue Technologies has won the 2015 OCE Mind to Market award. Clear Blue is a shining example of an innovative Canadian company. We are pleased to be able to support them, and congratulate them on this excellent award.

Congratulations to Nobel Prize winner Professor Arthur McDonald

Yesterday the world learned that professor Arthur McDonald of Queen's University (my alma mater) won the Nobel Prize for Physics - this is great news for Canada's investment in basic science. Listen to Professor McDonald's comments on the need for greater balance in investment on basic science and the need for greater industry investment in science and R&D. This shows the value of investing in basic science in those areas where we have world leading expertise.
