CRIN Oil and Gas Technology Competition: Information Webinar


This May 18, you’re invited to the launch of the Digital Oil and Gas Technology Competition offered by the Clean Resource Innovation Network (CRIN).

Speaking at the launch will be Joy Romero (CRIN president), Nannette Ho-Covernton (CRIN co-lead, digital oil and gas theme), and Shahab Shahnazari (MaRS director of Innovation Partnerships).
