Assets And Services
The Simulation Centre (SC), Business Accelerator and Innovation Services, The Advanced Product Development Laboratory. Georgian’s Centre for Applied Research and Innovation (CARI) works closely with business, industry and community partners to solve difficulties or assist in the development of a product that has the potential to be commercialized, thus assisting the business to be more profitable. With the assistance of our faculty and students we collaborate on applied research projects using some of the latest equipment and laboratories.
Visualization, Informatics, Simulation
The Simulation Centre (SC) - testing new products, processes, and clinical protocols in a real life simulated environment. Infrastructure includes: a 60 bed simulated hospital environment with high fidelity mannequins; state of the art motion capture hardware and software, including IP-enabled cameras; and, a Real-Time Locating System (RTLS) for simulation, tracking hand hygiene compliance, conducting applied research in infection control technologies.
Product Testing and Materials Characterisation
Evaluate practices, services or products
Prototyping and design
Can assist companies to develop prototypes
Business Accelerator and Innovation Services: space for industry partners to work alongside our faculty and students, enabled by state of the art video conferencing equipment that connects each campus
