MIDAS Lab has grown up and gone off to college!

We are thrilled to announce that KAST’s project management of MIDAS Lab changed over to Selkirk College on April 1, 2020. Selkirk College, a key partner at MIDAS Lab from the very beginning, will be taking over daily operations as they transition the facility into the Selkirk Technology Access Centre (STAC).

STAC will focus on offering services in advanced manufacturing, advanced materials and advanced computing which is designed to build the competitiveness of companies in the Kootenay region. It’s exciting news for our local research community and key industry sectors as the lab grows and extends its services and impact in the Kootenays.

If you have any questions about the changes ahead and the new STAC facility, send an email to Jason Taylor at jtaylor@selkirk.ca.
