Simon Fraser University Key Developments

Ultra Electronics Maritime Systems Inc. Sign Collaborative Research Agreement with the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council, Department of National Defence, Defence Research and Development Canada and Simon Fraser University

Ultra Electronics Maritime Systems Inc. announced that it has signed a collaborative research agreement with the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the Department of National Defence (DND) and Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC), and Simon Fraser University (SFU). This three-year initiative is worth in cash and in kind, approximately $1.15 million with Ultra contributing $500,000, NSERC $420,000 and DND/DRDC $225,000. This partnership is just one facet of the Ultra's Strategic Aerospace and Defence Initiative (SADI) agreement entered into with Industry Canada. The SADI agreement provides long-term funding allowing Ultra to undertake a six-year $27.4 million internal research and development (R&D) programme that will provide competitive advantage against international competition in the fast-growing, military towed, low-frequency, active-passive market. Ultra has done similar partnering with other Canadian community colleges and universities such as the Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC), Dalhousie University and the University of New Brunswick (UNB). Specifically, the research with SFU will explore the use of Micro-Electrical-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) as accelerometers for incorporation into thin-line high fidelity directional sensors. It is envisioned that MEMS technology can be used to produce these sensors with significantly reduced diameters allowing for lighter and more manageable towed arrays.

Simon Fraser University Joins with Ryerson University and the Bombay Stock Exchange Institute to Develop and Expand Groundbreaking Incubator in India

Simon Fraser University has joined with Ryerson University and the Bombay Stock Exchange Institute (BSEI) to develop and expand a groundbreaking incubator in India. The BSEI-Ryerson Digital Media Zone was established in July 2013 and this week Ryerson, SFU and BSEI signed a letter of intent to collaborate on its further development through an accelerator program. The incubator allows entrepreneurs to fast track their startups and connect with mentors, customers and investors. It lays the groundwork to help young entrepreneurs expand into both the Indian and Canadian markets and provides support and resources for entrepreneurship development and professional development education. The five-year agreement between Ryerson, Ryerson Futures Inc., Simon Fraser University and SF Univentures will support collaboration on a number of fronts, including accelerating the development and commercialization of innovative research and new technologies in India and Canada and providing opportunities for entrepreneurship education, training and development. For Ryerson, the arrangement will enhance opportunities for young entrepreneurs. The BSEI-Ryerson Digital Media Zone is built on a unique model developed at Ryerson University that has attracted international attention.

Simon Fraser University and Jilin University Open Bioarcheology Research Centre

Simon Fraser University announced the launch of a new joint research centre on bioarchaeology with Jilin University (JLU). Led by SFU professor Dongya Yang, the Joint Centre for Bioarchaeological Research (JCBR) will provide faculty, scholars and students the opportunity to advance studies in both Canada and China. This joint research centre will create an effective platform for faculty and students from both SFU and JLU to conduct collaborative research in archaeology, and to gain overseas research experience in both China and Canada. While SFU will begin receiving JLU's visiting archaeology faculty and graduate students in January of 2014, this is not the first partnership between the two institutions.
