15 McGill researchers have received $3.7M in federal grants through the Canada Foundation for Innovation’s John R Evans Leaders Fund, with each recipient also receiving matching funds from the Quebec government. Among the projects funded will be efforts to improve batteries in electric vehicles and develop off-grid energy storage solutions that maximize intermittent renewable energy sources like solar and wind power. “The latest CFI investments provide our researchers with the foundational infrastructure needed to become leading-edge contributors in diverse research fields ranging from mechanical engineering to dermatology,” said McGill Vice-Principal of Research and Innovation Martha Crago.
