Carleton University and the University of Ottawa have each announced new investments in research chairs over the past week. Carleton has announced the establishment of a new Ericsson Chair in 5G Wireless Research through the Ericsson-Carleton University Partnership for Research and Learning in 5G Wireless Networks. The chair, which has received a combined $2M in funding from Ericsson Canada and NSERC, will focus on solutions to the challenges of using 5G in the real world. Chair holder Ioannis Lambadaris will focus on challenges faced by Ericsson, techniques for indoor localization, drone control systems, and latency reduction in drone control systems. UOttawa has announced that it has partnered with the Jarislowsky Foundation to endow a $4M chair focused on climate change and sustainable development research capacity. The new Jarislowsky Chair in Clean Economy and Innovation will support research on fiscal policies that will reinforce climate-friendly behaviour and train and mentor students on how to influence climate economics.
