The Canadian government said Friday it will invest 32 million Canadian dollars (about 30.43 million U.S. dollars) on 20 projects over six years to help young researchers to build up their professional and personal skills for future jobs.

"Our government is committed to developing, attracting and retaining the world's best researchers here in Canada," said Minister of State (Science and Technology) Gray Goodyear at Dalhousie University.

"Through the investment of the Collaborative Research and Training Experience (CREATE) Program, recent graduates are making a successful transition into the knowledge workforce and are strengthening Canada's economy," he said.

The projects explore a variety of research areas, including photonics, climate change, civil engineering and optical networks.

In addition to the advanced training already received in their science and engineering studies, the training and mentoring projects funded through the CREATE Program will help students and post-doctoral fellows further improve their employability skills. The program will help attract highly qualified students, increase their mobility nationally and internationally, and establish links that will further their chosen careers.
