GCCIR at Global Petroleum Show 2018: Minister Hon. Deron Bilous highlights impact of international R&D collaborations between SMEs

This month the GCCIR attended one of the biggest shows around technologies in the oil and gas sector, the Global Petroleum Show, in Calagry. Also attending were Orcan Energy AG from Germany and Atlantis Research Labs Inc. from Alberta. The two SMEs have recently entered into an innovative R&D collaboration. To learn about this new collaboration project and highlight the impact that the Albert government’s R&D funding programs have, Hon. Deron Bilous, Minister of Economic Development and Trade (EDT), stopped by the Orcan Energy AG and Atlantis Research Labs Inc.’s booths at the Global Petroleum Show.

The collaboration project Orcan Energy AG and Atlantis Research Labs Inc. have entered into is funded through the Alberta-Europe Technology Collaboration Fund, a program created by EDT and administered by the German-Canadian Centre for Innovation and Research (GCCIR) to support Albertan companies, foster economic growth in Alberta, and encourage international knowledge transfer between Alberta and Europe.
