The Centre received a donation from Suncor to create the Suncor Post-Doctoral Fellowship. The fellowship is awarded to researchers for periods of one to two years and is funded for a total of 5 years. The first Suncor Post-Doctoral Fellow was hired in early 2015.
Relevant research is introduced through the Centre’s Enbridge Research in Action (ERIA) and ConocoPhillips IRIS seminar series.
The ERIA Seminar Series is held at least four times each academic year and brings together influential researchers, practitioners and industry experts to discuss and disseminate leading-edge sustainability research in Canada and abroad. The Centre hosted four seminars during the 2014-15 academic year with a total attendance of 522 individuals.
The ConocoPhillips IRIS Seminar Series is held at least four times each year and facilitates the dissemination of leading sustainability endeavours from the governmental, academic, non-profit and industry view. The Centre hosted six events, and of the five tracked total attendance was 356 individuals.
The Centre’s ERIA and ConocoPhillips IRIS seminars are open to the public to attend. In addition, all events sponsored by the Centre are free for University of Calgary students, staff, and faculty to attend.
