According to a new agreement between Laurentian University and Cambrian College, they will be working to improve the research as well as innovation in Northern Ontario.
Based on a joint press release given by Laurentian and Cambrian, the agreement will be working on the development of partnerships to create collaborative works. This move will greatly help the students, staffs and faculty of the two institutions in order for them to move on to research projects that are bigger in scale.
The two schools will be able to share among them their equipment, professional expertise, administrative services as well as facilities. This will there will be improvement in innovation, results and their overall productivity.
The aim of the agreement is to gather all their resources and use the combined expertise between the two educational institutions to make things better for the student researchers and give the quality educational experience. The partnership will lead to more professionals with top quality reputations attracted to the schools and the schools themselves will be able to create a top professional one day. The post-secondary partnership in Sudbury will eventually result to a higher research capacity either fundamental or applied and will lead to an increase in income. At the end of the day, the culture of innovation in the city will be stronger than ever.
According to the memorandum of understanding, there are guidelines that need to be followed before new partners in research arise.
There is already an initiative starting because of the memorandum of understanding and it is a collaborative project. The leader is Dean Miller who is Laurentian’s Bharti School of Engineering’s professor of energy in mining and Laurentian’s MIRARCO’s energy director at the same time.
Millar is currently conducting an investigation on the unique system comprised of HAC or hydraulic air compressor that can be utilized to clean as well as cool the air in environments where ultra deep mining is conducted. In these environments, the air temperature can reach as high as 40 degrees Celsius. Researchers from Laurentian are doing collaborative work with faculties and students coming from Cambrian College in order to perform trials on the said BabyHAC.
