The NSERC CREATE Guided Light Program seeks to lift PhD students out of research ‘silos’ that are naturally shaped by the limited resources and expertise found within the four walls of academic labs. It will enable students to engage in higher impact research objectives that will help them harness a full spectrum of research expertise, professional development, advanced tools, and resources. By investing in these trainees, the program aims to enhance Canada’s economy principally in the target area of manufacturing of novel optical technology. Our goal is to build future world leaders in research who are shaped for creativity, innovation in areas of technology transfer and commercialization of new optical devices, advanced manufacturing processes, and more functional consumer products.
