Cambrian College receives $2.1M research grant: A collaboration with mine business partners for the next five years – by Karen McKinley (Northern Ontario Business – June 26, 2017)

The future is looking more secure for several innovation projects at Cambrian College in Sudbury with a large grant coming their way.

Cambrian Innovates, the applied research division at the college, and three mining industry partners will benefit from a $2.1-million grant aimed at supporting a five-year Mine Environmental Stewardship Initiative.

The grant is coming from the federal government’s National Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) College and Community Innovation (CCI) program. The funds were secured through an Innovation Enhancement grant that will support a five-year Mine Environmental Stewardship Initiative.

The grant will be applied to research projects that will be carried out to identify or test practical solutions to issues confronted by industry partners and key clients.

Each project will engage a team of research leads, industrial partners, faculty members, student researchers and expertise from Cambrian’s established research partners. It also includes partners at Laurentian University’s Vale Living with Lakes Centre and its focus on research on environmental remediation, protection, and conservation. “It’s a great partnership between the college and the businesses and industry partners,” said Mike Commito, Cambrian’s applied research developer.
