Resource Recovery Partnership Workshop 2016
The goal of the workshop is to bring together stakeholders from the academic, government and private sectors to identify opportunities and barriers within Canada’s current resource recovery sector.
The content of the workshop will focus on three current areas of need:
Building a network to identify stakeholders;
Understanding existing data and research and increasing the availability of that information;
Identifying opportunities to establish a funding base for resource recovery related research.
