National Research Council of Canada (NRC) is the primary national research and technology organization of the Government of Canada, in science and technology research and development.
The University of British Columbia (UBC) is a public research university with campuses in Vancouver and Kelowna, British Columbia. Established in 1908, UBC is British Columbia’s oldest university. The university ranks among the top three universities in Canada.
The NRC and the UBC are partnering to create a new Collaboration Centre for Clean Energy Transition.
Researchers from the NRC’s Energy, Mining and Environment Research Centre, and key faculty members and students from the UBC Applied Science and Science faculties will work together to develop innovations in hydrogen and carbon technologies across the value chain of clean energy development.
This includes materials, systems, technologies and industrial applications.
The collaboration will lead to discoveries and advances in the transition to clean technologies, including publications, patents, and the commercialization of technology to enable affordable, clean alternatives to fossil fuels.
It’ll also provide training opportunities for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.
