Our Mission

“Connecting researchers and industry”

Incredible research is being done in Canadian colleges and universities. Unfortunately, that work remains inaccessible to the public since it is kept in labs and academic papers.

At 5minofscience, we are building a database of short videos of researchers talking about their work. Our objective is to break the wall between public research and industry.

This central repository will allow news outlet to find experts for a report, corporate executives a consultant for specific problems that they may encounter, venture capital a project to fund, or even help researchers cooperate with peers.

At 5minofscience we want to give the microphone back to researchers by allowing them to explain in their own word their discoveries and their potential impact.
