We are prudent and resourceful.

Tough economic times and reduced government funding of university research has necessitated certain shifts in the acquisition and utilization of financial and other resources. Greater efficiency in capital expenditure management, inter-university sharing of research goals, materials and apparatus, and a general trend toward “doing more with less” now characterize much contemporary research activity. Researchers have learned, in recent years, to become “stingier” and more economical in how they plan and carry out their work. This has led to savings.

But, often that has not been enough. And it has been important to go beyond traditional sources of university research support. Entering into agreements with corporate partners or communities has led to new vistas for studying the pressing issues of the day, still maintaining strict principles of scientific objectivity and research ethics.

In many cases, the research undertaken through organizations like our Digital Futures Research Hub offers considerable potential for commercialization. Or our experts are able to assist non-academic organizations through consultancy or contract research aimed at production or efficiency outcomes. Proof of concept research, product development and marketing feasibility studies can all be outsourced to organizations such as the Digital Futures Research Hub.

If you represent an organization with a research focus, or even a problem you would like to tackle, please think of us. There could be exciting opportunities for us to partner with regard to resource sharing or through your investment in our research pursuits. If you see any concepts in these web-pages that you feel merit your support, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We look forward to hearing from you!
