Over $1.9 M From CFI For Atlantic Research Infrastructure

In Atlantic Canada, the Canada Foundation for Innovation’s Leaders Fund has awarded over $1.9 million to support 14 projects. The funding is for cutting-edge research equipment, laboratories and tools for researchers. The CFI funds facilities and equipment in Canada’s universities, colleges, research hospitals and non-profit research institutions. In turn, this enables universities to remain internationally competitive in areas of research and technology development. Here is the collated list of projects funded in Atlantic Canada:
