Governance

Waterloo Institute for Nanotechnology (WIN) believes in strong governance. We believe we are accountable to our stakeholders. We believe that WIN can benefit from the review, insight and guidance provided by top directors with strong international, industrial and academic experience in science and technology.

Board of Directors (BOD)

The BOD provides operational oversight and approval. The BOD:

  1. receives regular and annual activity and financial reports from the Executive Director;
  2. develops and approves policies;
  3. approves memberships; and
  4. considers all matters relevant to the successful operation of the institute.

The BOD consists of members of the research, institutional and corporate communities who have expertise on nanotechnology issues and who are interested in and committed to the institute’s mission. The directors include:

  • WIN Executive Director
  • Deans of Engineering and Science
  • Three industrial/partner members
  • Three regular WIN faculty members

International Scientific Advisory Board (ISAB)

The ISAB is an external expert committee that provides advice to the executive director and the Board of Directors of WIN on the excellence, relevance and impact of research programs carried out by WIN members; the degree to which the research programs reflect the vision and objectives of the institute; the strategic positioning of the institute; the identification of promising new areas of focus; the identification of potential synergies and partnerships with other major players in nanotechnology and other issues of scientific importance that may affect WIN’s progress and goals.
