AECL & CNL Build on Longstanding Relationship With the University of New Brunswick Through Collaborative Research Agreement
CHALK RIVER, Ontario, June 09, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL), Canada’s nuclear Crown corporation, and Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL), Canada’s premier nuclear science and technology laboratory, are pleased to announce that they have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the University of New Brunswick (UNB) to pursue collaborative research opportunities. The MOU shows continued momentum for AECL and CNL in their efforts to develop a partnership network with Canada’s academic community, and builds on what has been an already close relationship with one of the country’s leading universities.
- That relationship includes the delivery of research conducted in partnership with UNB’s Centre for Nuclear Energy Research (CNER).
- Last year, this ongoing collaboration culminated in the signing of a partnership agreement to pursue commercial opportunities in the nuclear power industry.
- However, CNL also maintains facilities in close proximity to UNB, which includes its National Innovation Centre for Cybersecurity in Fredericton, New Brunswick.
