Mission

Com&Tech Innovations Lab (CTI-Lab)

Com&Tech Innovations Lab (CTI-Lab), founded in 2017, is an initiative of several researchers and professors at the University of Ottawa. The CTI-Lab aims to encourage innovative methods and strategies for communication across a variety of organizations. The CTI-Lab is a space for experimentation and creation of knowledge. We incorporate a participatory approach by collaborating to support the co-design of communication strategies, and the use, mapping and visualization of public data to propose innovative solutions to public authorities and organizations. CTI-Lab’s mandate focuses on the creation of a space for interaction, collaboration, and co-design involving researchers, students, citizens and organizations to tackle complex and multifaceted problems.

Student involvement

The CTI-Lab has for objective:

  • To offer undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral students a space for collaboration, exchange and training in the field of communication and information technologies;
  • To offer opportunities for students to work as research assistants or volunteers (through the Community Service Learning program) and to participate actively in the researches/activities led by the CTI-Lab;
  • To allow students to present their work/research during workshops and to offer them a space for exchange and collective reflection.
