UVic joins Bombardier EcoJet project to help foster sustainable aviation

Bombardier has announced that the University of Victoria will be the first academic partner in the Pan-Canadian EcoJet Research Project. The collaboration between Bombardier, UVic’s Centre for Aerospace Research, and British Columbia’s SME Quaternion Aerospace will support the manufacturer’s eco-jet technology, which is intended to contribute to a more sustainable global aviation industry. UVic students and researchers will gain hands-on, real-world skills as they contribute to the project. “This collaboration marks a significant step forward in our commitment to sustainability, a greener future for the aviation industry, and the development of cutting-edge technologies that advance the frontiers of science and engineering right here in British Columbia and throughout Canada,” said UVic President Dr Kevin Hall.
