Another important step for Saskatchewan in re-establishing its position in nuclear industry

Saskatchewan takes another important step in re-establishing its position in the nuclear industry: ... this is the direct link to the government of Saskatchewan's announcement: "Minister responsible for Innovation Rob Norris today signed a multi-year agreement for Innovation Saskatchewan to provide funding for the new $30 million Canadian Centre for Nuclear Innovation (CCNI), a world-class research centre housed at the University of Saskatchewan to support nuclear research, development and innovation.
"The Canadian Centre for Nuclear Innovation is a key cornerstone of Saskatchewan's innovation and nuclear agendas," Norris said. "It will play a vital role in advancing our vision for a safe, responsible, value-added nuclear agenda that focuses on nuclear medicine, material science, safety and small reactor technology."
"Building on the university's renowned history in nuclear medicine and accelerator technology, the CCNI will help Saskatchewan build and maintain a community of expertise to engage the broader community in evidence-based conversations about nuclear issues and inform policies on nuclear technologies for the benefit of society and the economy," CCNI Vice-Chair and U of S Vice-President Research Karen Chad said.
"The CCNI's board of directors is a strong team of experienced academics, executives and managers who bring perspectives from universities, colleges, industry, and government agencies, including the University of Saskatchewan, Cameco and Atomic Energy of Canada Limited, as examples," CCNI Interim Director and Director of the National Research Council's Canadian Beam Centre John Root said." and this is the story on ctv: ...
