Applied Research at Seneca
Seneca’s Applied Research, Innovation and Entrepreneurship (ARIE) supports services relevant to industry, driven by faculty and focused on students. ARIE helps partners access Seneca resources, including the expertise of highly qualified personnel (faculty, staff and students), research infrastructure and funding opportunities, many of which are available only through collaboration with Seneca.
Centre for Innovation, Technology and Entrepreneurship (CITE)
Seneca’s CITE, which opened its doors in January 2019, is a cutting-edge facility designed to bring applied research, specialized training and entrepreneurial activities under one roof.
As the institute’s new technology and innovation hub, CITE is home to ARIE as well as:
- Mechatronics Simulation and Demonstration Centre
- Seneca HELIX
- Data Analytics Research Centre
- Centre for Development of Open Technology
The new space includes classrooms, labs and a presentation gallery that incorporates Indigenous design. Entrepreneurial supports are designed to help small- to medium-sized enterprises from North Toronto and the York Region to build their innovation capacity with access to maker spaces, labs, equipment and research expertise.
