Wearable, Interactive and Mobile Technology Access Centre in Health
We are WIMTACH
WIMTACH (Wearable, Interactive and Mobile Technology Access Centre in Health) brings a world of expertise, state-of-the-art facilities and an international reputation for professionalism to the digital health technology industry in Ontario and Canada. It offers these resources and more to companies so that they can take their applied research project innovations from the idea stage to the commercialization stage.
WIMTACH began in April 2015 with a $1.75 million federal grant. Honourable Ed Holder, Minister of State for Science and Technology visited Centennial College’s Progress Campus, and he discussed the need for more innovative industry-partnered developments in technology. WIMTACH then became one of the 30 Technology Access Centres funded by Natural Science and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC). There is a proven track record of success: WIMTACH has completed 68 projects completed, has 90 industry partners, developed 59 new technologies and products and engaged over 325 students.
Without the faculty, researchers and students of Centennial College, success couldn’t have been achieved. Collaboration has been key. WIMTACH offers endless opportunities for students to gain experiential learning and technical training outside of the classroom through events, hackathons and employment with WIMTACH and WIMTACH partners.
