8 million from CFI for HiLight project

Retour aux nouvelles

Led by professors Sylvain G. Cloutier of École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS) and Wei Shi of Université Laval, the Hybrid integrated systems of Light (HiLight) infrastructure project receives $8 million from the Canada Foundation for Innovation and the Quebec government.

Professors Shi & Cloutier, behind the project, propose to push back the boundaries of science by pooling infrastructures between Université Laval (UL), Université de Sherbrooke (UdS), École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS) and Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières (UQTR).

This multi-institutional initiative aims to develop new components and integrate them into high-level assemblies to improve functionality, reduce energy consumption and catapult data transmission speeds.
