McGill Researchers Collaborate on Breakthrough Research Projects with the National Research Council
Today [June 20], Iain Stewart, President of the National Research Council, Canada's largest federal research and development organization, announced the results of the inaugural round of the NRC’s New Beginnings Initiative. The New Beginnings Initiative is part of the NRC’s Ideation Fund, which was announced in Budget 2018 to encourage, test and validate transformative research ideas generated by NRC researchers working with external collaborators.
... The projects with McGill collaborators and associated funding amounts include:
Bio-inspired Architectured Ceramics for High Temperature Applications ($25,000)
This proposal targets a bio-inspired approach based on bio-inspired architectured material designs to address the brittleness of industrial and high temperature ceramic materials, as their main drawback, under thermal shocks - $25,000
