Default Folding for a Canadian university...

Those programs for folding are very nice, it's also awesome to see so many people donating their electricity bills for them.

However I have been wondering... any folding project running in a Canadian university?

I work myself for a canadian government agency that funds projects and researchers in canadian universities i've been wondering if there is not a canadian project we could donate our canadian CPU cycles to, I searched a little but did not find a thing.

In the mean time... WTF HWC!!!!

There are different universities that have students that have unofficial clubs however to my knowledge there is no publicly funded or acknowledge universities. If you want to change this, lemme know if its possible to get funding for the Computer and Electrical Engineering Society over here at UNB

It would be cool that Canada join the folding rank. Like putting pub for it or something like that. Maybe we should talk to our depute? I can try for mine he is living like...3 street from me XD.

Ask for more.

Lol martin why do you always put "Ask for more" at the end of your posts, what does that even mean haha. I also have a fun time trying to decipher your franglish grammer :) And ya, Skyllz you should get on that and see if you can get some funding for folding at a Canadian Uni and then get them to build a nice folding farm :)

Yeah, I said I worked at an agency that provides funding, I freaking wish I was the one writing the checks or had some decision power in that. Would be fun

But still, the fact that i'm involved to some extent in this made me think about that and I was wondering if there was not already something running where we could, as canadian, help a canadian university instead fo a US one.

One of the WCG projects, Help Conquer Cancer, is half-Canadian from the looks of it: World Community Grid - Research - Research Participants
Before the contest I was dividing CPU on my main between WCG and Rosetta.
