It is not very clear to me if this transfer also means that research will shift from non-profit work into a commercial business.

No, as KRI is part of Toronto University (part of Ivy league), so all projects will continue. As well as the new ones.

WCG news: https://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/about_us/viewNewsArticle.do?articleId=732
KRI news: https://www.uhn.ca/corporate/News/P...ter_coming_to_Krembil_Research_Institute.aspx

But this is also a hope, for WCG to rejuvenate. It has been neglected for so long with IBM staff guidance. Forum was obsolete, information about project tracking were hidden from users, those few users which started keeping track of the project - were continually pushed out by moderators, etc.
Surely, there will be changes- we hope in the direction to the better.
