Networks Of Centres Of Excellence

NCE networks are large-scale, academic-led virtual research centres that bring together multi-disciplinary partners from academia, industry, government and not-for-profit organizations. Networks perform R&D and “translation-commercialization” activities, and enable Canadian researchers and students to work with receptor communities to accelerate the creation and application of knowledge.
