Why Partner with WISE
Talent and funding
|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.|
Our bench strength doesn't stop there. We have hundreds of talented graduate students and post-doctoral fellows to help you accelerate your research, supported by scholarships such as NSERC IPS, MITACS Accelerate, MITACS Elevate and Connect Canada.
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.|
A professional team to smooth the way
|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.|
A global outlook
|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.|
Intellectual property and commercialization
|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.|
A country geared to business
|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.
