THRILL Lab Director Dr. Kathryn Woodcock has teamed with lead applicant Dr. Louis-Etienne Dubois of the FOL!E lab and Prof. Vincent Hui of the [R[ed[U]x Lab to secure a small Ryerson Research infrastructure grant to develop attractions on campus, and especially to explore diverse voices in themed attractions. The Theme Studio will partner with industry and we’re open to contributions of hardware, mentoring, and questions of mutual interest.
The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) administers a highly coveted Discovery Grant program to provide basic funding to successful researchers. We’re thrilled to receive funding for 2014-2019 to keep the THRILL fires burning. Full operation of the lab requires supplementary and complementary funding through scholarships directly to students, industry contracts, subsidies, gifts in kind, and internal university sources, but without NSERC’s valuable support, it would be difficult to maintain the lab. Thank you, NSERC!
