Marcelle-Gauvreau Engineering Research Chairs Program
The objective of the Marcelle-Gauvreau Engineering Research Chairs Program is to elevate the careers of talented researchers by focusing not only on their research contributions but also on their determination and proven resiliency, both in their personal and professional lives.
With a budget envelope of $5 million spread out over 5 years, the Program will award a total of ten Engineering Research Chairs to researchers who meet these criteria, including five to be awarded to applicants from outside of ÉTS.
ÉTS hopes to further diversify its faculty through this Program. Studies have shown that women possess many of the character traits required to meet the established criteria. The Program will also promote equity by providing new perspectives for individuals who may have taken the road less travelled, sometimes fraught with difficulties.
