Universities and businesses set up collaboration forum

Canada’s universities, colleges and major employers have created a round-table to improve their communication and boost research collaboration and graduate careers.

“Canada is one of the few industrialised countries that do not have a national forum for dialogue between large employers and post-secondary institutions,” said Tom Jenkins, the chairman of the OpenText Corporation and one of three co-chairs of the round-table. “The creation of this round-table marks a significant step forward. It will provide a common space for collaboration, networking and the exchange of good practices that will benefit all Canadians.”

The group’s two main priorities will be to help young Canadians move from education to the workplace, and to improve coordination between research and teaching on campuses and the needs of Canadian employers.
