SOSCIP supports collaborative R&D projects that involve academic and industry researchers working together to solve challenging problems using SOSCIP’s computing platforms.
The SOSCIP Consortium invites Ontario-based researchers and industry representatives to contact our team of Industry Academic Development Officers (IADOs) and discuss partnership opportunities and computing platform capabilities.
