Polytechnique Montreal has launched a UNESCO chair in green and sustainable electronics. The Chaire UNESCO en électronique verte et soutenable (ÉleVéS) will be held by Clara Santato and will involve researchers from Africa, Europe, and the United States. Santato and her team will seek solutions to improve the lifecycle of electronic devices, reduce the impact of electronic waste, and study the design of electronic devices with a small environmental footprint that draw on waste from industries such as forestry and food.
