Nine University of Windsor research projects recently received $1,757,036 in funding initiated by the Ontario Research Fund – Small Infrastructure.
K.W. Michael Siu, UWindsor vice-president research and innovation, said the funding will support economic gains and job creation within the province.
“Generous funding by the Ontario Research Fund will support research projects at the University of Windsor that advance biotechnologies, catalysis, energy systems and structural engineering,” said Dr. Siu. “These projects will train the next generation of scientists and engineers, and develop high-value products that will lead eventually to economic gains and job creation.”
In his funding announcement, Rick Nicholls, MPP for Chatham-Kent-Leamington, said the funds are intended to help researchers build or upgrade state-of-the-art labs and equipment, and support key projects focused on industry and human health.
“Chatham-Kent, Leamington, Essex, and Windsor are home to world-class researchers,” he said. “Having the latest technology will help researchers at UWindsor contribute to a strong Ontario.”
