International Minerals Innovation Institute

SASKATOON — For the first time, the University of Saskatchewan (U of S) has helped match provincial post-secondary researchers with Saskatchewan mining companies in an innovative approach to solving industry issues.

Innovation Enterprise (IE) at the U of S and the International Minerals Innovation Institute (IMII) are pleased to announce 17 successful grant recipients from 55 applications submitted at last week’s AIMday (Academia Industry Meeting day), a first-ever North American event that matched corporate needs for new knowledge with relevant academic expertise.

The IE and IMII jointly hosted the event at the Innovation Place, which was focused on finding solutions to a wide variety of mining sector questions and issues, ranging from less reliance on fossil fuels and more green energy sources for the industry, to developing new methods of detecting potential pipeline breaks before they occur.
