Event Details

Genome Canada is launching a national research funding initiative called ‘Large Scale Applied Research Program 2015: Natural Resources and the Environment: Sector Challenges – Genomic Solutions’ (2015 LSARP). 2015 LSARP aims to support applied genomics research that address challenges and opportunities in Canada’s natural resources, thereby contributing to the Canadian bio-economy and the wellbeing of Canadians.

The workshop, organized by Canada's Genomic Enterprise and the Petroleum Technology Alliance of Canada (PTAC), will bring together key end users and partners for potential research projects; inform them about opportunities for collaboration; and solicit interest in the 2015 LSARP initiative.

The keynote presentation will be provided by Dan Wicklum, Chief Executive Officer, COSIA, titled “Collaboration and innovation in the oil sands: past, present and future”.

We have negotiated a preferred rate and room block reservation with Hotel Arts if you are travelling from outside Calgary. The group name is under "Genome Alberta" and the room rate is $229.00/night. You are responsible for making your own reservation by May 22, 2015 with Hotel Arts by calling 403-266-4611. 

We will accept a limited number of registrations (100) based on a first-come, first-served basis; therefore, please register early. In addition, there are limited registrations available for 'Academic - Project Support' spots; the purpose is to engage industry and find industry partners and therefore we are providing preferential access to industry over additional academic participants. Please consider this during your registration. As the event fills, this attendance option may be deleted and only additional 'Academic Project Leads/Presenters' will be invited.

Genome Canada & The Petroleum Technology Alliance of Canada

Genome Canada and its regional Centres (Canada's Genomic Enterprise) are not-for-profit organizations that act as catalysts for developing and applying genomics and genomic-based technologies to create economic and social benefits for Canadians. Genome Canada connects ideas and people across public and private sectors to find new uses for genomics; invest in large-scale science and technology to fuel innovation; and translate discoveries into applications, new technologies, societal impacts and solutions across key sectors of national importance including health, agriculture, forestry, fisheries & aquaculture, energy, mining, and the environment. To ensure effective management and monitoring of Genome Canada funded projects, centres have been established in each region across Canada including Genome Alberta, Genome Atlantic, Genome British Columbia, Genome Prairie, Genome Quebec and the Ontario Genomics Institute. The Centres facilitate access to leading edge technology for researchers, allow for different approaches to project development and fundraising, and provide opportunities for public outreach programs at a regional level. Please view for more information.


Petroleum Technology Alliance of Canada’s (PTAC) mission is to facilitate innovation, collaborative research and technology development, demonstrations and deployment for a responsible Canadian hydrocarbon energy industry. Please view for more information.
