The C2C program facilitates the collaboration between industry and academia, necessary for solving industry business challenges, while advancing innovations critical in building and sustaining Ontario's knowledge economy. The program greatly benefits students, post-doctoral fellows and other highly qualified personnel by providing them with real-world experience as well as training and networking opportunities in the industrial innovation space.
