The federal government is doling out $515 million to support fundamental research by engineers, scholars, scientists and students across the country.
The funding comes from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council. The University of Guelph receives close to $19.2 million under the program. That investment will support the work of 82 faculty, researchers and students.
A good chunk of the U of G’s funding – $8.35 million – went to support a project studying rare isotope physics, involving three Guelph physics professors and collaborators from five Canadian institutions.
