Applied Research & Innovation

Applied Research and Innovation

Applied research is where ideas meet reality, delivering practical solutions to everyday problems. Applied research assesses a need, proves a concept and tests new products to refine them for market.

From agriculture to artificial intelligence, from biotechnology to biomechanics, our faculty experts will help you refine your question, set up a research program and build your prototypes for testing. With dozens of program areas and some of the most advanced equipment in the province — we have the expertise you need.

Whether you’re an aspiring entrepreneur with a big idea, or an industry professional with a challenge begging for a solution, Saskatchewan Polytechnic has the tools and expertise to help.
