Conestoga has launched a new Research, Innovation & Entrepreneurship website. The site offers a centralized platform to feature and celebrate the research initiatives undertaken by the college’s researchers, and provides information on Conestoga’s research services and ethics review processes as well as how to partner with the college on research projects.
