If you are a representative from a CFI-funded institution or a researcher interested in listing a lab or facility in the Navigator, the listing can help you:
• establish or expand partnerships and collaborations with industry and others;
• undertake or expand contract research with the private and public sectors; and
• optimize the use of your research infrastructure.
Although CFI-funded infrastructure must be used for its primary research purpose, institutions are strongly encouraged to leverage the availability of the infrastructure to develop collaborations with partners from academic, public and private sectors.
Participation in this listing is voluntary.
If your lab or facility is already listed in the Navigator, we have developed a simple tracking sheet to help us gauge the use and success of the Navigator. This will make it easier for you to keep track of the extent and nature of the queries you receive as a result of your listing. We plan to contact you in a few months to obtain information about these contacts.
