The Hon. Reza Moridi, Ontario’s minister of Research and Innovation, toured the Welland campus Friday, Dec. 13, to learn about applied research projects, and the facilities and expertise available for Niagara’s small- and medium-sized businesses.

He spent time learning about research and innovation at the college, from president Dan Patterson, vice-president Academic Steve Hudson, and several members of the Niagara Research team.

Moridi’s tour included stops in the Niagara Research Technology Lab, the Renewable Energies Lab, and the Photonics Labs.

During each lab visit, he had a chance to learn about projects from both faculty and staff.

Details on the visit were also published inĀ Sun Media daily newspapers.


During a lab demonstration in Niagara Research’s Technology Lab, Minister Moridi hears from Ursula Susunaga, a mechanical engineering student and research assistant, and Rick Baldin, professor and research liaison, both with Niagara Research.
