Genome Canada is launching a national research funding initiative called ‘The 2015 Large Scale Applied Research Program: Natural Resources and the Environment: Sector Challenges – Genomic Solutions
’ (2015 LSARP). The funding will be aimed at research and development projects that will develop genomics solutions for issues facing the oil and gas industry.
Examples of potential projects areas include microbial influenced corrosion, tailings remediation, and extraction processes. On June 23rd there will be a national workshop in Calgary to bring together key end users and partners for potential research projects; inform participants about opportunities for collaboration; and solicit interest in the 2015 LSARP initiative.
Please join the Canadian Genomics Enterprise for this exciting event at Hotel Arts in Calgary, Alberta. The keynote presentation will be provided by Dan Wicklum, Chief Executive Officer, COSIA
, titled “Collaboration and innovation in the oil sands: past, present, and future”.
