A multidisciplinary research community
As an independent research institute, IESVic reaches beyond traditional boundaries of departments and faculties to bring together experts from a variety of fields. Research teams crosscut disciplinary affiliations and challenge students to examine sustainable energy systems from a variety of academic perspectives including engineering, science and the social sciences.
A supportive research culture
But while IESVic members’ backgrounds and research interests vary, they are united by a shared passion for sustainable energy. At IESVic, members meet weekly for coffee, cookies and discussions about their research and sustainable energy issues. Collaboration among research teams is the norm rather than the exception, and students and faculty are eager to share time, information and tools to aid in each other’s research.
