Climate Connections: Mining Edition

The climate imperative presents enormous challenges for industries that must now align their strategy and operations with the goal of a low-carbon economy. As industry steps up to meet these pressing climate challenges, there are exciting new opportunities for the translation of research into impact.

Enter Climate Connections, our problem-driven event series that connects solution-seekers from industry with researchers and innovators from academia, and fosters cross-sector connections to address the climate challenge.

On October 18, we’re focused on mining, bringing together industry experts who will present short “reverse pitches” on the challenges they see.

Through structured conversations with academic researchers, innovators and entrepreneurs, we’ll unpack and explore their challenges and help align research with commercial opportunities. 


  • Moderator: Flyn McCarthy, Strategic Advisor - Mining Cluster, BC Net Zero Innovation Network.

More speakers to be announced soon.
