UBC Electrical and Computer Engineering researchers have been awarded nearly $2.6 million from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) through its Discovery Grants Program.
The Discovery Grants support “ongoing programs of research with long-term goals rather than a single short-term project or collection of projects. These grants recognize the creativity and innovation that are at the heart of all research advances.”
Two UBC Electrical and Computer Engineering researchers also received nearly $300,000 in NSERC Research Tools and Instruments Grants.
The NSERC Research Tools and Instruments Grants “foster and enhance the discovery, innovation and training capability of university researchers in the natural sciences and engineering by supporting the purchase of research equipment.”
183 projects across UBC were awarded a total of $40.1 million from NSERC. For more information about these projects, please see the announcement of UBC’s Office of the Vice President Research and Innovation.
