The biennial SFU Climate and Energy Research Day took place on April 27, 2017 at the SFU Burnaby Campus. The event was 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 was focused on the climate, water and energy nexus. Our goal was 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 provided an opportunity for SFU scholars with interest in energy, water and/or climate change research to engage with other scholars at SFU.
