McGill researchers to help make electric cars cheaper

Close to $5 million from NSERC to improve Canadian competitiveness in electric vehicle market
Wed, 2013-02-27 10:50

McGill University researchers are developing low-cost and high-performance electric engines for the next generation of electric vehicles, in collaboration with industrial partners Linamar, TM4, and Infolytica. They will be able to take advantage of the recent development of batteries with high energy densities to create optimal electric drivetrains for on-road electric cars. The drivetrain is the group of components in a motor vehicle that uses the energy stored in the battery to generate mechanical power and deliver it to the road surface.

McGill researchers receive prestigious NSERC award

McGill researchers have received recognition from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) for outstanding university-industry collaborations and research at the graduate level.
Wed, 2013-02-27 10:06

Prof. Derek Gray, of the Department of Chemistry, and Prof. In-Ho Jung, of the Department of Mining and Materials Engineering, will each receive a Synergy Award for Innovation. These awards were launched by NSERC in 1995 to recognize partnerships between universities and industry in natural sciences and engineering research and development. Since their inception, the awards have honoured the most outstanding achievements of university-industry collaboration in the natural sciences and engineering. Each winner receives a $200,000 research grant.

“The Synergy Awards for Innovation recognize outstanding achievements that have resulted from partnerships between university researchers and industry,” says Suzanne Fortier, President of NSERC. “These awards honour collaboration as the foundation of achievement and highlight Canadian innovations.

Canadian Common CV Workshop

Wed, 2012-12-12 10:00 - 12:00
Education Building : Room 133, 3700 rue McTavish Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 1Y2

Gradually, more Tri-Council (NSERC, SSHRC, CIHR) funding opportunities are starting to require the Canadian Common CV (CCV) as part of the application. In addition, a new version of the CCV was released in the summer of 2012.

What this means for researchers is that:

1) some will be creating a CCV for the first time and

2) some will be migrating from the old CCV to the new one.
