The University of Toronto’s TalentEdge research program, managed on behalf of the Government of Ontario, represents a joint collaboration between the city and university. Recent graduates and postdoctoral fellows in the Ontario area can apply for fellowships that give them the opportunity to conduct in-depth research into a subject of their choice.
Canadian Solar previously contributed to the TalentEdge program in 2012, and this year’s donation will help fund Project #21659, which is under the supervision of Dr. Francis Dawson, Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Toronto. Project #21659 focuses on the two-dimensional simulation tool project, which specializes in the design and research of novel solar cells.
Dr. Shawn Qu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Canadian Solar, commented, “As Canada’s leading public university, theUniversity of Toronto plays an important role in scientific research and development. Not only are we pleased that we had the opportunity to give back to my alma matter, we are also certain that this donation will help advance solar research.”
