SFU Climate and Energy Research Day: Exploring the Climate, Water and Energy Nexus

April 27, 2017 - 8:15am to 5:00pm


Saywell Hall 10041, SFU Burnaby Campus

Burnaby , BC



The biennial SFU Climate and Energy Research Day will take place on April 27, 2017 at the SFU Burnaby Campus.  The event is 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 is focused on the climate, water and energy nexus.  Our goal is 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 morning session (8:45 am to 11:45 am) is open to the public.  A recording will also be available for later view.

Morning session comprises:

Opening remarks, Joy Johnson, VP Research and International
Keynote speakers: Jonathan Wilkinson, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of the Environment and Climate Change, Andrea Reimer, City of Vancouver and Stephanie Smith, BC Hydro
Panel session with Stephanie Smith (BC Hydro), Andrea Reimer (City of Vancouver), Diana Allen ( Earth Sciences), Majid Bahrami (Mechatronic System Engineering), and Jonn Axsen (School of Resource & Environmental Management). Moderator: Zafar Adeel (Pacific Water Research Centre)
