Industrial Research Chairs

Industrial Research Chairs (IRCs) are prestigious appointments, intended to assist universities in building on existing strengths to achieve the critical mass required for a major research endeavour in science and engineering of interest to industry; and/or assist in the development of research efforts in fields that have not yet been developed in Canadian universities but for which there is an important industrial need.

IRCs are funded jointly by NSERC and industry.
