C-CORE is an applied R&D corporation in St. John's, Newfoundland. Affiliated with Memorial University of Newfoundland, it embraces a wide spectrum of engineering and business skills required by resource industries operating in global markets. C-CORE works closely with industrial partners to develop technologies for resource industries and collaborates with industries, research institutes, universities and government agencies to build highly skilled teams that respond to global technology challenges. Since 1975, its activities have grown to include applied R&D, technology transfer and technology demonstration, commercialization of intellectual property and specialized advisory services to a wide range of industries.

The collaborative work environment at C-CORE allows the organization to apply the fullest available range of expertise to client needs. Undertaking major programs in ice engineering, remote sensing, geotechnical engineering and intelligent systems, C-CORE applies this expertise across a number of resource sectors including oil and gas, mining, pipelines, and fisheries. A further initiative currently underway at C-CORE is adapting and applying space technologies to resource sectors such as mining and oil & gas, which operate in harsh terrestrial and marine environments.

C-CORE's in-house facilities include an Acutronic 680-2 Centrifuge Machine, a full-scale buried pipeline modelling facility, mechanical, electrical, and soils laboratories to support its research activities and excellent computing capabilities including the connection to a high speed network.

C-CORE's clients are national and international companies and government agencies from many market sectors, the largest being pipeline, oil & gas, mining and fisheries. Working in partnership with other R&D corporations, small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) and academia to deliver services and technologies maximizes both the R&D effort and the financial resources for projects.

C-CORE's Board of Directors is responsible for the strategic direction of the organization. The Board of Directors, a majority whom are from industry, keep C-CORE linked to the needs of its industrial clients. When required to do so, C-CORE diversifies into new technology areas to support the activities of its stakeholders. Further, the cultivation of human resources, in close collaboration with Memorial University, is a key element of the organization's strategic vision. C-CORE offers many opportunities for graduate and undergraduate students to work on industry relevant projects and for its employees to pursue higher education. C-CORE remains dedicated to the economic development of Canada, in particular the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador.
