The AdvancingEducation Program will help connect Ontario’s public education system including English and French K-12 schools as well as post-secondary institutions with companies to test early market interest and demonstrate innovative products and technologies in an education setting.
Designed to bolster innovation in Ontario’s public education system through partnerships between schools and companies, the program invests in collaborative innovation procurement projects to demonstrate new technologies in a public sector setting as a means of building a strong case for adoption and system-wide scaling.
OCE will accept applications to AdvancingEducation in early February. The theme for the upcoming Call for Applications is Student engagement technologies that improve learning outcomes and/or accessibility.
OCE is holding a partnering forum to bring together the education sector, industry and academic partners to learn more about the program and foster project collaborations.
