Collaboration is at the heart of AdvOL's research program. The group members and their colleagues are true research partners, with each providing valuable contribution and specialized knowledge. A number of initiatives benefit from the contributions of industral partners: IBM, Bell Canada, Motorola, as well as of the national funding agencies such as NSERC, CFI, OIT, mprime, all of whom help to strengthen the crucial link between fundamental research, implementation and practice.
The group is now in the creation of a national and regional research network MODEX.
