Automotive research receives almost $5 million in funding

Friday, October 25, 2013

Reducing weight and fuel consumption while ensuring safety in mid-size cars is one of three initiatives led by University of Waterloo researchers that received major government funding today.
 
The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) announced that the Automotive Partnership Canada program will provide $4.9 million in support of three projects being driven by Kaan Inal, Michael Worswick and Kyle Daun, all Waterloo mechanical and mechatronics professors who are part of WatCAR, the University of Waterloo’s Centre for Automotive Research. 
 
“Waterloo is home to the largest concentration of automotive researchers at any university in Canada,” said Pearl Sullivan, dean of engineering at Waterloo. "The funding announced today will be critical for advancing further our world-class research in the development of lighter, safer, and more fuel-efficient cars. The projects will strengthen the technological competitiveness of our automotive industry.” [news release]
