Ontario has announced $137 million in funding for 53 research projects in the latest round of awards from the Ontario Research Fund – Research Infrastructure. The funding includes large-scale and collaborative projects undertaken by 17 large provincial institutions. Ontario says the funds will cover the cost of building, renovating or equipping facilities. Some projects cited include the Univ Health Network‘s Princess Margaret Cancer Centre Precision Medicine Program on genetic and non-genetic aspects of cancer; Univ of Waterloo’s RoboDrive research facility and test track for autonomous vehicles; and Carleton Univ‘s Centre for Advanced Building Envelope Research on new insulation technologies for Canadian homes and buildings. The projects, which span across different disciplines – from healthcare to advanced manufacturing and clean tech to computer technology – are also aimed at supporting high-quality jobs.
