Supporting Canada’s Energy Transition – Bridging the Gap between Fundamental Research, Industry, and Policy

Organized by: Queen's University

For our prosperity and well-being, Canada must build a low-carbon energy future. The pathway to this future requires political leadership informed by collaboration with various partners – including government, Indigenous peoples, researchers, and industry.

Science and innovation will be key to driving this low-carbon future. Expertise in energy sources (e.g. petroleum, natural gas, renewables, and nuclear) and policy will be critical to informing the technologies, materials, and processes that facilitate this transition.  Before this research can inform government processes and policies – and before emerging technologies can be commercialized and mobilized – efforts must be made to translate and effectively bridge the research-industry-government gap.  This is not an easy journey, filled with barriers (e.g. regulatory hurdles, training, financial resources), and much promising research gets “lost” along the way.  

Building on Natural Resources Canada’s (NRCan) Generation Energy initiative and the successful workshop (Envisioning a Competitive Low-Carbon Energy Future: The Role of Nuclear and Renewables) hosted by Queen’s University and NRCan in 2017, this symposium will explore how we can facilitate and accelerate knowledge translation and exchange (KTE) to help realize our low-carbon economy. What are the tools for KTE between these various bodies? What role can the various partners play in accelerating KTE?
