Orientation I - To act as a locus of scientific innovation for technology incubation
To achieve its objectives, 3IT acts as a technology incubator by giving the means for academic researchers and industry members to innovate and achieve successful technology transfers.
Orientation II - Establish an interdisciplinary continuum of scientific innovation and technology maturation
3IT encourages cross-cutting innovation that eliminates the borders between disciplines in order to satisfy real needs. It frees specialties from their silos, fostering a continuum of scientific innovation and technology maturation that is unique across Canada. The result is an ecosystem for research and innovation, ranging from nanotechnologies to device characterization, from electronic encapsulation and prototyping to their use in functional systems and their evaluation in real conditions.
