Carleton University has partnered with BlackBerry QNX on a five year, $21M USD strategic partnership. The partnership will see BlackBerry provide technology for a new embedded operating system software research lab at Carleton’s Advanced Research and Innovation in Smart Environments building. BlackBerry will also provide 600 BlackBerry QNX software development seat licences for students, and the company’s R&D and leadership teams will collaborate with Carleton faculty, undergraduate, and graduate co-op students. “We are proud to strategically and holistically partner with BlackBerry QNX, building on our past research collaborations in connected and autonomous vehicles, biomedical engineering and robotics,” said Carleton President Benoit-Antoine Bacon. “We look forward to working with the QNX team to advance future developments of the high-tech industry in our city and around the world.”
