Clean Energy Research Lab

The Clean Energy Research Laboratory (CERL) is used for research on hydrogen production, heat engines and nanotechnology. Currently, researchers are working on the world’s first lab-scale demonstration of a copper-chlorine cycle for thermochemical water splitting and nuclear hydrogen production. Hydrogen is a clean energy carrier of the future and potentially major solution to the problem of climate change. Read more about CERL.

Energy Systems and Nuclear Science Research Centre

The Energy Systems and Nuclear Science Research Centre (ERC) is a 9,290-square-metre facility that houses UOIT’s unique-in-Canada education programs and leading-edge research in geothermal, hydraulic, hydrogen, natural gas, nuclear, solar and wind energy. The ERC also promotes Canada’s entrepreneurial advantage through public-private research and commercialization partnerships. Read more about the ERC.

UOIT-CMCC Centre for Disability Prevention and Rehabilitation 

In 2012, the UOIT-CMCC Centre for Disability Prevention and Rehabilitation was established through a research partnership between UOIT and the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC). The centre was inaugurated by the Honourable Deb Matthews, Minister of Health and Long Term Care on July 16, 2012.

The centre, directed by Dr. Pierre Côté, Canada Research Chair in Disability Prevention and Rehabilitation, works with related health research and innovative supportive agencies, educational partners, health-care delivery institutions, industry and government to examine questions focused on the prevention and management of chronic musculoskeletal and psychological conditions and disabilities. Research at the centre will generate new ideas involving integrated, collaborative and evidence-informed approaches to health care.
