Cambrian once again among Canada’s top 50 research colleges – by Heidi Ulrichsen (Sudbury Northern Life – November 17, 2016)

As it has for five years, Cambrian College cracked Research Infosource’s list of Canada’s top 50 research colleges — the only college in Northern Ontario to do so.

But in its most recent ranking, for 2015, it sunk ten spots over the previous year. Cambrian ranked 44th on the list last year. It ranked 34th in 2014, 36th in 2013, 37th in 2012 and 34th in 2011 (that’s the earliest year for which information on this ranking is available on Research Infosource’s website).

“There was a change in the ranking, certainly, but I think that sort of speaks to how strong some of our other competitors are,” said Mike Commito, applied research developer with Cambrian Innovates.

“I don’t think there’s any concern with the change in the ranking, and I think ultimately with these there’s such a strong pool of competitors across the country. Ultimately that’s a win-win for everybody in terms of pushing forward innovation and applied research in Canada.”

The ranking shows Cambrian’s research income dropped very slightly in 2015 compared to the year before.

That number was at $1.524 million in 2015 and $1.564 million in 2014. But overall, Cambrian’s research income has grown, as in 2013, it was at $1.49 million and in 2012 and 2011 it was at about $1.1 million.
