Academia

To advance their research program, the Wind Energy Institute of Canada collaborates with many academic institutions throughout Canada and the United States. We value relationships with academia because of the specialized expertise that academics can offer to research problems. Collaboration with professors has mainly taken place through our Visiting Professor and Peer Review Program (VPPP) and through funding from research grants. We are open to new collaborators and continuing research with current and previous collaborators in performing research that follows our mandate. Complied below is a list of collaborators.
