Nova Scotia Energy Research & Development Forum 2012

Nova Scotia Energy Research & Development Forum 2012

OERA, in partnership with the Nova Scotia Department of Energy, were pleased to host the 5th biannual Research & Development Forum at the World Trade and Convention Centre May 16th and 17th, 2012.

The 2012 Forum demonstrated increased student participation, registration, and delegate encouragement. In 2012, we brought together local, national, and international representatives from government, industry, and academia to build on the current state of knowledge – over 50 experts presented their research. Once again we have used the two days to network, become informed about the work of others and to be inspired about research opportunities and capabilities.
