The CUTRIC MEDEI Electric Vehicle (EV) Research, Development & Demonstration (RD&D) Consultation & Project Development Workshop is sponsored by Ontario's Ministry of Economic Development and the University of Ontario – Institute of Technology (UOIT).
Select industry and academic stakeholders are being consulted to determine the opportunities, challenges and industry-academic solutions related to battery electric and hybrid vehicle technology innovation in Ontario.
Several industry-academic collaborative projects will be developed as part of CUTRIC's Cycle 1 project financing starting in 2016.
All project ideas generated at this workshop will be shared with the provincial MEDEI and federal ministry of Innovation, Science & Economic Development (ISED). They may form part of CUTRIC's co-financing strategy for transportation innovation in Canada, both heavy-duty/bus, and light-duty/automotive. Projects may range in TRL from 1-7.
