Senior leaders and outstanding researchers from the University of Windsor will be heading to Queen’s Park on Wednesday to share the University’s priorities, achievements, and opportunities with members of the provincial government.
The University delegation will be hosted for the day by Windsor-Tecumseh MPP Andrew Dowie, and will meet with regional MPPs Anthony Leardi (Essex), Trevor Jones (Chatham-Kent-Leamington), and Lisa Gretzky (Windsor West), to discuss governmental/university collaborations and partnerships; regional development; electric vehicle research and development; public health and health research; nursing; and agriculture.
“These are vitally important issues for people across Ontario, so we view this as an ideal opportunity to sit down and talk about how University of Windsor research and innovation can provide unique solutions,” says Vincent Georgie, UWindsor associate vice-president, external.
“We are planning a busy day and will make the most of our time meeting with policy makers and governmental leaders across several ministries to shine a light on University of Windsor research priorities.”
Dowie says he is delighted to share the great work happening at the University of Windsor with his Queen’s Park colleagues.
“Countless examples exist of pioneering relationships with industry such as the Ed Lumley Centre for Engineering Innovation, and the new Wine and Spirits Lab that concurrently benefit students and our economy, and I can’t wait to help the University of Windsor tell their story.”
The visit will conclude with an evening event hosted by the University of Windsor Alumni Association to greet Toronto area supporters, friends, and alumni.
