A natural gas research agenda for BC: bridging gaps in research and action

A natural gas research agenda for BC: bridging gaps in research and action was a two day dialogue session held on 21-22 November, 2013 in Vancouver, BC. 29 participants from the academic, non-profit, legal, business, and technology sectors as well as representatives from government and First Nations took part.

The dialogue was designed to answer the following key questions:

  • What are the assets and deficits we have as a natural gas research community in BC?
  • What specific areas should the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions focus on over the next two to five years?
  • What and where are the opportunities for multi-disciplinary collaboration?
  • Who should coordinate the research and provision of deliverables?
  • What do you need to know from other disciplines and sectors?
