Thinking Big with Nano

Energy: The Global Challenge

  • Date: Thursday, November 6, 2014
  • Time: 3:00 pm – 4:15 pm
  • Location: NINT Taylor Room, 11421 Saskatchewan Drive

Can renewable energy options allow humans to meet the growing energy, food, and water demands of the increasing world population in a sustainable manner? Starting from a brief overview of the energy CHALLENGE, we consider and discuss options for short-, medium-, and long-term approaches to solving this challenge.

We’ll also touch on the problem of (mis-/dis-) information, which concerns all, but engineers and scientists in particular, as we are supposed to be well-informed… Indeed, this lecture is, to some extent, meant to encourage you to filter information carefully.

Everyone is welcome! Refreshments will be served starting at 2:45 pm.

NRC_1914NINT supports interdisciplinary collaboration in strategically important areas of nanotechnology by creating a unique environment that merges the best of the university knowledge creation culture with the best of the strategic and focused problem solving culture of a national laboratory to ensure responsible and effective introduction of nanotechnology to the benefit of Canada.
