Applied Research, Innovation and Entrepreneurship Services
Centennial is one of Canada's top colleges for research, innovation, and entrepreneurship. In Our Strategic Plan (Our Book of Commitments), we committed to Drive Innovation and Entrepreneurship by integrating key related functions within the College.
This is why we have brought the Applied Research and Innovation Centre (ARIC), the Centre of Entrepreneurship (COE), and the newly formed Wearable, Interactive, and Mobile Technology Access centre for Health (WIMTACH) together into a single unit named ARIES (Applied Research, Innovation and Entrepreneurship Services). In including ‘Services’ in our name, we also reiterate our commitment to Centennial’s Service Promise. This convergence will help us serve our clients better by realizing synergies, and providing a single point for service. We can now provide our services through a physical presence at three of our four campuses.
In this integrated form, we serve dozens of businesses each year, helping them to overcome both innovation and entrepreneurship challenges. We will also offer Centennial students, faculty, staff, administrators, and our partners opportunities to connect more easily to share expertise and experiences to the benefit of all. ARIES now has a direct phone number: 416-289-5128. Anyone seeking to access our research, innovation, and entrepreneurship services simply has to call this number to engage the appropriate liaison. You can still contact individuals on our team directly at their current extensions as before.
