Fleming College Receives $1.5 Million in Federal Funding for Strategic Research Initiatives


Peterborough, ON – (Oct. 14, 2022) – Fleming College has been awarded a Mobilize grant worth $1.5M over five years from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) College and Community Innovation program. The Honourable François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry, announced the funding today.

Fleming will use the funding for several initiatives, such as the expansion of research into new areas and updated training programs, to ensure the sustained growth of its research activities.

“Fleming College has a strong applied research reputation due to the success of our three dedicated research centres, and the NSERC Mobilize funding will provide us with an opportunity to expand research into new areas at the College,” said Maureen Adamson, President of Fleming College. “With this funding, Fleming will continue to support new collaborations and researchers, leading to increased local innovation and job-relevant experiential learning opportunities.”

A portion of the funding will also support expanded training initiatives at Fleming’s three research centres, the Centre for Advancement of Water and Wastewater Technologies (CAWT) and the Centre for Innovative Aquaculture Production (CIAP) located at the Frost Campus in Lindsay, as well as the Centre for Advancement in Mechatronics and Industrial Internet of Things (CAMIIT) at Peterborough’s Sutherland Campus.
