Applied Research for Industry
At SAIT, there is a recognition of the important role post-secondary institutions play in applying their expertise and facilities to solve industry challenges. ARIS was established in 2003 as SAIT's gateway to applied research for industry partners. Our unique innovation-service offerings, labs and equipment, and expertise enable us to collaborate with organizations and transform their novel concepts into working prototypes.
How We Work
Innovation services at ARIS begin with the initial project inquiry, where organizations define their technology-development needs. Successful project inquires result in non-disclosure agreements and partner meetings with lead researchers. Together, they then undertake project planning and budgeting, and work with in-house grant writers to apply for funding. Once approvals are complete, projects are executed and student researchers are engaged.
