Biomass Canada Cluster Webinar Series

“De-risking and commoditizing underutilized biomass resources:
Facilitating the evolving Canadian bioeconomy”

Upcoming Webinars

Biomass Canada Cluster, Project Updates Webinar Series

April 28 – June 9, 2022. Thursdays 1:00-2:30 pm EDT

As part of its knowledge translation commitment and due to COVID-19 restrictions to hold in-person seminars and conferences, the Biomass Canada Cluster in collaboration with Biomass and Bioenergy Research Group (BBRG) at UBC organized a webinar series from December 2020 to March 2021 with the theme “De-risking and commoditizing underutilized biomass resources: Facilitating the evolving Canadian bioeconomy”. The principal investigators of each activity in the Biomass Canada Cluster and their industrial partners presented the progress in their activities and the contribution of their research to the evolving Canadian bioeconomy.

The Biomass Canada Cluster is holding its next webinar series from April 28 to June 9, 2022 to present progress in its activities since the first webinar series. Similar to the previous series, the project leaders and their industrial partners will provide updates on the results and achievements of their activities. Each webinar is scheduled for 1.5 hours covering the updates and progress on two activities. The webinars schedules, presenters, and their presentation titles are provided below. You can also find the link to register for each webinar as well.
