NSERC Discovery and Accelerator Award

This NSERC Discovery Grant providees 5-years of operating funds for our research group.  It supports basic research focused on creating new conducting polymers for enhanced and useful properties.  The result of this fundamental research feeds into our various applied research projects including NSERC supported Strategic Projects as well as projects funded by industry and government laboratories.  The funding is key for supporting the activity of our group and the training of the students who work with us.

We were fortunate to recieve one of the few Discovery Accelerator Suppliments that provides additional funds over the next three years to enhance training and research in the area of electronics and solar energy conversion.
