LEAN & GREEN: GROWING NEW COLLABORATIONS
4:00 PM to 6:00 PM
Are you a company that has an eco-project or idea on the back burner because you don't have the time, money, or expertise? Are you wondering how to take your company to the next level of sustainability? Do you know where to go or who to talk to for R&D help? Do you want to put more green on your bottom line?
McMaster University’s Industry Liaison Office, along with Canada’s Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) and CANMET Materials Laboratory, has put together a one-stop networking event to answer those questions.
Registration and Parking for this event are free; however, space is limited so please sign-up early to reserve your ticket at: http://growingnewcollaborations.eventbrite.ca/
•Talk one-on-one with experts on Green and Sustainable technologies from McMaster University, CANMET-MTL, and Mohawk College
•Learn how to apply for NSERC’s Engage & Interaction grants
•Discover resources, facilities, and people that can help your R&D ideas become reality, all while enjoying some great local food
Meet experts on:
•Solar energy & photovoltaics
•Energy conservation & demand management
•Power grid management, power quality, & substation automation
•Optics manufacturing, micro-machining, & process automation
•Surface science and next generation materials
NSERC's ‘Engage’ and ‘Interaction’ grants provide funding for first-time industry/academic research collaborations; that is, projects where the academic and industry partners have never formally worked together. Success rates for applications are high, there are no application deadlines, and no cash contributions are required by industry.
