It will feature UWindsor professor Francine Schlosser, director of research and interdisciplinary learning at the Entrepreneurship Practice and Innovation Centre (EPICentre), talking about the policy challenges that have faced the solar tech sector and how ingenuity must rise in the face of embedded agency.
