SFU Climate and Energy Research Day: Exploring climate, water and energy nexus
The biennial SFU Climate and Energy Research Day will take place on April 27, 2017 at the SFU Burnaby Campus. The event is hosted by the SFU’s Office of the Vice-President, Research and International, Faculties of Arts and Social Science, Environment, Health Sciences, Interactive Arts and Technology, and Science, Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions, SFU Climate Futures Initiative, Climate Change Impacts Consortium and the Pacific Water Research Centre.
The 2017 Research Day is focused on the climate, water and energy nexus. Our goal is to find new research synergies across the university by challenging current research teams in these three areas to work across their disciplinary boundaries and envision projects that span at least two points of this nexus.
The day will comprise:
- Opening remarks, Joy Johnson, VP Research and International
- Keynote speakers: Jonathan Wilkinson, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of the Environment and Climate Change; Andrea Reimer, City of Vancouver and Stephanie Smith, BC Hydro.
- Panel session with Stephanie Smith (BC Hydro), Andrea Reimer (City of Vancouver), Diana Allen ( Earth Sciences), Anil Hira (Political Science), and Jonn Axsen (School of Resource & Environmental Management). Moderator: Zafar Adeel (Pacific Water Research Centre)
- Poster and research sessions to compete for $1,000 dollars (best reconstructed poster) and $ 5,000 dollars (best research proposal).
- Plenary and reception
