2021: A year of perseverance


As I reflect on this past year, and all the challenges thrown at every one of us, there
is something that stands out in my mind: The examples of sheer creativity and perseverance from the small businesses we have had the privilege of serving at our research Centres. I am awe-inspired at how SMEs continue to ride this rollercoaster, adjusting not only to pandemic-related impacts, but also pivoting entire business models to remain inventive and competitive.

The same enthusiasm can also be found within our Research & Innovation division.
I am incredibly proud of the entire team for their tireless dedication in assisting our industry partners through these challenging times, while jointly providing students with meaningful work experiences.
