The University of Toronto has been awarded a $200-million grant from the Canada First Research Excellence Fund (CFREF) to revolutionize the speed and impact of scientific discovery through its Acceleration Consortium.
The funding – the largest federal research grant ever awarded to a Canadian university – will support the consortium’s work on ‘self-driving labs’ that combine artificial intelligence, robotics and advanced computing to discover new materials and molecules in a fraction of the usual time and cost
