The coordination of research activities on icing, high voltage and electrical network engineering, as well as establishing a critical mass of researchers and sharing of expertise and equipment, are among the primary objectives of CENGIVRE. More particularly, its  role is to:

  • provide additional resources and supports to clustered research units
  • facilitate more efficient maintenance and use of equipment
  • ensure the sharing of information and expertise between units
  • make strategic grouping requests
  • create a niche in electrical network engineering
  • attract outstanding students and renowned researchers
  • train highly qualified personnel
  • consolidate the international leadership of UQAC in the field of atmospheric icing and power engineering.
