McMaster-led auto research project receives $2.1 million

Charlotte Yates, dean of social sciences and a labour studies professor at McMaster, is the first social scientist to receive an Automotive Partnership Canada grant

Yates is the first social scientist to receive an Automotive Partnership of Canada (APC)  grant and says the project is especially innovative for bringing together a team of social scientists and engineers to examine automotive policy.

The research at McMaster will be based in the Canadian Automotive Policy Partnership (CAPP) and will focus on Canada's quest to keep its automotive manufacturing sector competitive and sustainable in an increasingly challenging global market.

APC’s support for the partnership, which is part of a larger $145-million initiative announced by the federal government in 2009, enables the creation of a network of experts in automotive manufacturing policy  and the training of more than 40 graduate, post-graduate and undergraduate students in evidence-based manufacturing policy.
