Georgian College recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Nuclear Innovation Institute (NII) agreeing to work together to drive projects and programs for the broad benefit of the energy sector and our local communities.
NII is an independent not-for-profit organization located in Saugeen Shores that provides a platform for accelerating the pace of innovation in the nuclear industry. Their goal is to shape a Canadian nuclear industry that embraces new thinking, new technologies and new lines of business that play a central role in the global shift to a low-carbon future.
Georgian and NII share a commitment to Canada’s clean energy future, an innovative and resilient nuclear industry, and improved skills and knowledge for the digital age.
Kevin adds that the MOU translates into an incredible amount of good work that will continue for many years to come.
As a Friend of NII, Georgian will support NII through in-kind resources, volunteer time, technical expertise for project proposals, sharing relevant NII news articles and research projects, and collaborating on various initiatives or activities.
Friends of NII are not-for-profit and public sector organizations – such as industry groups, postsecondary and research institutions – that share NII’s mission to embrace new thinking and technologies to improve performance in the energy industry.
In return, Georgian can receive support from the NII Expert Advisory Group to support the development of programs and services that meet the needs of NII members and organizations that NII supports, as well as support for projects, programs, and research initiatives that relate to NII’s mission and objectives. NII will also share relevant Georgian-related news articles, research findings, programs, services, and other relevant materials with its members.
