Mixer cultivates new connections.

The Chemical Institute of Canada's Vancouver CIC Local Section, in partnership with the NSERC-Pacific regional office, hosted the BC Academic-Industry Mixer II this past November, bringing together members of the chemistry community. The goal of the event, held at Simon Fraser University and supported by the Association of the Chemical Profession of British Columbia, was to develop new academic-industrial collaborations and research opportunities by bringing together academic researchers and industry representatives as well as agencies that facilitate these relationships. Representatives from NSERC and Mitacs, a not-for-profit organization that delivers research and training programs in Canada, addressed these partnerships from a funding agency standpoint.
