WestGrid launches new Associate Member Program to better support research & innovation
For more than 20 years, WestGrid has directly supported researchers at its founding member institutions spread across Western Canada. We are now looking to expand our reach to support more research and innovation in academia and industry.
We're working to create more opportunities for progress, extend the value of research & development (R&D) outcomes, and help you discover what’s possible more quickly.
In response to the growth of digital research infrastructure applications across all sectors, we’ve listened to the needs, concerns, and opportunities of our stakeholders, and used that feedback to build an Associate Member program that provides enhanced value in range of ways.
Our new Associate Member Program is an opportunity for research-driven institutions and innovative organizations to tap into WestGrid’s resources, services, and experts.
Some of the 'Member Perks' you receive:
» A representative on WestGrid’s Associate Member Research Advisory Committee
» Consulting and technical support for R&D funding programs for research, innovation, and economic development
» Opportunities to pilot new technologies and novel approaches to research
» Discounted access to WestGrid-organized events, including training events and conferences
» Opportunity to host a WestGrid-organized Summer School or Winter School
» Additional channels for technical talent recruitment and free job advertisements on the WestGrid website
