The Manitoba Institute for Materials facilitates and enhances basic and applied materials science at the University of Manitoba and in the prairie region. There is a large number of materials researchers in the region who are actively pursuing topics in the fundamental science of complex materials. The Institute provides mechanisms to explicitly foster networking and collaboration between researchers with different backgrounds and from diverse disciplines, as well as to maintain, build and enhance the research capabilities of the region's materials scientists. The Institute also stimulates the research and training environment within the University by organizing a regular seminar series and by bringing in visiting scientists for discussions, seminars, and longer term stays. Finally, the Institute provides a platform for leveraging grant applications of members for equipment and personnel to enhance the research in the region.
If you are a researcher in the prairie region who is interested in participating in the Institute or an organization interested in accessing our expertise or infrastructure, please do not hesitate to contact us.
