We make it easy:At WISE, we work with the private sector, government agencies, research institutions and other universities at home and abroad to advance sustainable energy.
Whether you're simply looking to test a prototype you've developed or whether you're interested in long-term research collaborations, we'll help you make it happen. To explore the possibilities, contact us.
Our researchers are recognized around the world. And with more than 90 faculty members, our expertise includes just about every aspect of sustainable energy, from policy issues to the technical challenges of generating energy, transmitting it, storing it and using it efficiently.
On top of that, the University of Waterloo operates the world's largest cooperative educational program, with 12,000 of the most work-ready students in Canada available to help you via co-op terms, competitions and design projects.
Take advantage of our state-of-the-art facilities to move your project forward. From the latest nanotechnology processing tools to our rooftop wind and solar energy test platforms, we have an impressive range of research and testing equipment on offer.
Let the WISE team connect you with the right people and opportunities. We're here to assist you at every stage of your project, from establishing partnerships to accessing funding to commercializing the results of your research.
Today, creating sustainable energy solutions takes global thinking. At WISE, we have a track record of successful partnerships around the world, as well as collaborations with multinational enterprises like Toyota, Mitsui, CISCO and IBM. Being part of a university with satellite campuses or offices in Nanjing, Manhattan and Rome only enhances that international outlook.
There's a reason why Waterloo consistently ranks as Canada's most innovative university: we foster entrepreneurial attitude. Our "Inventor-owned" intellectual property policy gives researchers--not the university--the rights to what they create, making it extraordinarily easy to do business at WISE. Many of the country's best hi-tech companies trace their roots to Waterloo, including RIM, Dalsa, OpenText and Thalmic Labs.
In 2009, The Economist Intelligence Unit rated Canada the number one place to do business in the G-7. Meanwhile, our national economy has grown faster than any other G-7 country over the past 10 years, creating an unmatched investment climate for foreign direct investors.
Not only that, your investment goes further in Canada. Canadian universities charge outside partners significantly less overhead than our counterparts in the U.S. and elsewhere, while generous government incentives have created the lowest R&D cost structure in the G-7.
