Ottawa is contributing $5 million to the establishment of a new facility for R&D at Brock University in St. Catharines, Ont.

The new facility will focus on advanced research and innovation in bioagriculture, bioscience and chemical manufacturing.

The FedDev funding through the Community Economic Development and Diversification stream was announced Tuesday, Sept. 3 by Niagara Centre MP Vance Badawey and St. Catharines MP Chris Bittle. The funding means Brock can launch the Brock-Niagara Validating, Prototyping and Manufacturing Institute (VPMI), which will enable area businesses to access Brock University’s researchers, expertise and advanced technology.

The new centre will be housed in a $6.1-million expansion of Brock’s Mackenzie Chown Complex, which is expected to open in 2021.
