Waterloo, Technion Partner to Advance Research, Commercialization
Mar 18 14
Two of the world's top innovation universities hope to accelerate breakthroughs in research and commercialization with a new agreement signed during a joint conference in Israel on March 18, 2014. The agreement between the University of Waterloo and Technion-Israel Institute of Technology brings together some of the top minds in quantum information science, nanotechnology and water for pure and applied research. The conference to mark the start of the new partnership, and a reciprocal event in Waterloo planned for later in 2014, is funded by a donation to the University of Waterloo from The Gerald Schwartz & Heather Reisman Foundation. The new partnership agreement will connect students and faculty from both institutions with global markets through technology transfer and commercialization opportunities with industrial partners in Canada and in Israel. A joint research conference in Israel to mark the signing featured presentations by some of the world's top researchers, including Raymond Laflamme, executive director of Waterloo's Institute for Quantum Computing. A former student of Stephen Hawking, Laflamme is now leading the quest to develop the world's first universal quantum computer. The new research partnership will increase international opportunities for undergraduate, graduate and post-doctoral student research exchanges, along with joint training and education programs, including dual and joint degree programs. The institutions will also collaborate on applied research projects, workshops, seminars and conferences.
