Since January 2013, Yukon College has partnered with Access Consulting Group, Alexco Resources Group, Capstone Mining, Victoria Gold Corp and Yukon Zinc Corp. As a result of this partnership, the NSERC Industrial Research Chair in Mine Life Cycle was attributed to Yukon College and the industrial partners with the objective to advance environmental remediation techniques applicable in Yukon. The benefits of this collaborative approach between the academic researcher and the industrial partners our outlined in a presentation by Dr. Amelie Janin (NSERC Industrial Research Chair) and David Petkovich (General Manager at Access Consulting),an advisor for this research program. Tips and tricks on developing industry-focused research and research partnerships are covered in this presentation.

This presentation was delivered in early 2014 for the Science Community of Practice (SCOPe), a new initiative of the Interdepartmental Science Committee of Yukon Government. SCOPe activities may include brown bag lunch talks, field tours, informal discussion groups, workshops and networking opportunities, such as Science After Hours.
