INRS receives 7 NSERC Strategic Project Grants
Date:2/3/2014

INRS has topped all other Quebec universities with seven awards in the 2013 Strategic Project Grants Competition by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC). INRS placed third overall in Canada for total funding with over $3.5 million as well as for the number of projects funded.

This performance shows once again the kind of expertise INRS professors have developed in the fields of ITC, materials, and environmental sciences.

Funded projects

  • Developing a new paradigm for broadband RF signal processing in wireless communications: Jose Azaa, professor at the nergie Matriaux Tlcommunications Centre
  • Using enzymes to degrade pharmaceutically active compounds more cheaply and effectively in waste- and drinking water: Satinder Kaur Brar and Rajeshwar Dayal Tyagi, professors at the Eau Terre Environnement Centre
  • Developing better millimetre-wave reconfigurable antennas for wireless communication systems: Tayeb Denidni, professor at the nergie Matriaux Tlcommunications Centre
  • Developing a new generation of infrared subcyclic impulse lasers: Franois Lgar and Roberto Morandotti, professors at the nergie Matriaux Tlcommunications Centre
  • Controlling matter on the attosecond scale: designing a high-intensity harmonic-generating radiation source in carbon plasma: Tsuneyuki Ozaki, professor at the nergie Matriaux Tlcommunications Centre
  • Developing new silica-based fibre-optics for aeronautical applications: Federico Rosei and Andreas Ruediger, professors at the nergie Matriaux Tlcommunications Centre
  • Optimizing polarized helium-3 production for scientific and technological applications: Franois Vidal, professor at the nergie Matriaux Tlcommunications Centre

These NSERC Strategic Project Grants will enable INRS professors and their teams not only to contribute to the development and transfer of new understanding and technology, but also to train highly qualified workers in sectors that will play a critical role in society's future.
