Enabling Innovative Tech Solutions to Address the COVID-19 Pandemic
Published: April 24, 2020
As we adjust to the challenging and fast-changing global situation brought on by COVID-19, it is clear that we are all in this together. This is the idea behind the Ontario Centres of Excellence’s (OCE) recently launched COVID-19 Collaboration Platform. The platform is designed to help companies fill the product and service gaps related to the pandemic in response to the Province of Ontario’s Call to Action for suppliers, manufacturers, and service providers to assist in the healthcare effort. CENGN, along with other members of Ontario’s innovation network, has partnered with OCE to help Ontario innovators make the connections necessary to accelerate their products and services to market. In addition to the Collaboration Platform, CENGN is looking to enable any growing Canadian tech business addressing issues related to COVID-19. Specifically, CENGN is calling on all Canadian businesses that require infrastructure services to validate their networking solution. This call to action includes but is not limited to solutions in the following two categories:
- Products using cloud computing and big data solutions to support research and solutions addressing COVID-19 issues
- Products enabling remote work and that allow workforces to operate more effectively and securely in a remote setting
Together, we can respond to the global pandemic and make an impact, both locally and globally. To submit a project, visit our projects page.
