Concordia faculty can now offer their students more hands-on learning opportunities, thanks to a new partnership between the university and Riipen, a Canadian-based educational collaboration platform provider. Faculty have access to Riipen’s web-based platform for project-based experiential learning, which connects educators with industry partners — local companies, community organizations, government agencies and NGOs — to share projects and assignments.
“I’m really excited that we’re able to offer this new high-quality learning opportunity to our faculty and students,” said Dario Guescini, Director of Work-Integrated Learning. “Riipen will give students hands-on experience and career-ready skills as they transition into the workforce — which is exactly what employers are looking for.”
Riipen is proud to announce our partnership with Thales, the multinational company that builds electrical systems and provides services across the industries of aerospace, space, defence, security and transportation.

Last fall, thanks to funding from the BC Innovation Council (Innovate BC), the BC Public Service began an experiential learning pilot with Riipen, a Vancouver-based tech startup whose mission is to eliminate graduate underemployment. The company offers a web-based platform that connects students, recent graduates and educators to employers through project-based experiences both in and out of the classroom.
