Why Sector Important To Oil And Gas Innovation Ecosystem

This sector is the loci of both fundamental and applied research of a nature (time frame, duration, tenor) not normally undertaken by industry. It provides highly qualified personnel for industry and it can serve as a resource to address specific problems or issues affecting specific industry projects.

Highlights Of Ecosystem And CRIN Membership Growth Work April 2020 To March 2021

We were continuing to collate a group of post-secondary representatives to further develop our engagement plan and formulate the activities that can be undertaken.

We will finalize our sector engagement plan, present it to CRIN and then work to implement it.
