Applied Research at Okanagan College

Applied Research Projects Funded


How do baby boomers differ from Generation Y when it comes to picking out their preferred pinot?

It’s a question a pair of OC researchers will seek to answer as one of two new applied research projects to receive federal funding.

The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) has awarded Lee Cartier and Svan Lembke of the Okanagan School of Business $46,385 to undertake a project examining generational differences towards wine purchases. The research is being conducted in collaboration with the BC Wine Institute which will also contribute $30,000 to the project.

Trades instructors Luke Skulmoski and Sean Jarvis have been awarded $23,995 from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) to develop a device for counting used recyclable aluminum beverage containers for a Vernon-based business.
