The National Research Council Institute for Information Technology (NRC-IIT), headquartered in Fredericton and operating labs in three Canadian provinces, engages in research in three key information and communications technology areas: Data-derived Knowledge, People-Centric Systems, and e-Business.
NRC-IIT undertakes scientific research, technology development, knowledge creation, and innovation support. Through Information Technology Research & Development, they create a positive and significant influence on Canadian society.
In Fredericton, the NRC-IIT e-Business division is located on the University of New Brunswick (UNB) campus. The institute’s research disciplines encompass 3D Imaging, Modeling and Visualization; Interactive Information; Knowledge Discovery; Natural Language Processing; Human-Computer Interaction; Intelligent Internet Applications; and Learning & Collaborative Technologies.
Community stakeholders have been instrumental in guiding the entire research agenda of NRC-IIT-e-B. Based on the key research themes identified through community discussions, NRC-IIT has set up five specialized research laboratories.
The institute has also established a robust industry outreach capability. An entire floor of the Fredericton lab is dedicated to the Industrial Partnership Facility, a business accelerator that provides companies with access to cutting-edge technical facilities and opportunities to collaborate with NRC researchers.
