The RBC Innovation Awards are an annual event hosted by the Northwestern Ontario Innovation Centre. These awards identify individuals and companies who are changing the face of innovation in Northwestern Ontario. Cheadles LLP has been gracious enough to be a major sponsor of the event, donating $500 to the Innovative Project of the Year award.
This year's Innovative Project of the Year was awarded to Meaglow Ltd., whose Nitride Semiconductor Research Reactor is rapidly changing traditional crystal growth techniques, giving way to an entire new class of materials. These techniques allow for next generation products such as LED, solar cell, and wireless technology to be advanced beyond their current capabilities and at a lower cost.
The Innovative Project of the Year award acknowledges projects that demonstrate leadership with the creative use of innovation. These projects are expected to benefit the advancement of their industry, in addition to positively impacting the region at large.
