A new research institute has been established at McMaster University to coordinate its involvement in the automotive sector, according to an announcement made at the APMA annual conference in Hamilton, Ont.

The McMaster Institute for Automotive Research and Technology — called MacAUTO for short — will unite more than 75 researchers in engineering, science, business and other facilities involved in automotive-related research, including collaboration with more than 30 private and public sector organizations.

“Better coordinating our efforts across disciplines will lead to new ideas and better solutions for the automotive industry,” said Mo Elbestawi, vice-president of research and international affairs at McMaster. “It will also make it easier for organizations to access our pool of highly qualified researchers and leading-edge facilities to advance a vital industry sector in Ontario and worldwide.”
