OCE accelerates auto innovation through new program partnerships
As one of the key drivers of Ontario's economy, the automotive industry relies on innovation to ensure it stays globally competitive. Fueling that innovation is exactly what Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE) and some of its partners are doing through programs that will move more automotive-based research from the classroom to the showroom. OCE, on behalf of the Ministry of Economic Development, Employment and Infrastructure, will invest $1 million supporting driverless and connected vehicles as well as teaming up with AUTO21 to provide 50 students with practical automotive industry R&D experience.
