Community stakeholders have played significant roles in shaping NRC-IIT-e-B’s entire research agenda. NRC-IIT outfitted five specialist research labs based on the core research agendas as established with community consultations.

NRC-IIT has built a solid industry outreach capacity. An entire floor of the Fredericton lab is devoted to an Industrial Partnership Facility, a business accelerator that offers companies state-of-the-art technical facilities and the chance to interact with NRC researchers. Source NRC IIT
