The Helmholtz-Alberta-Initiative HAI - 2nd Annual Workshop
3rd & 4th March at the GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences
On 3rd and 4th March 2011, the 2. Annual HAI Workshop will be taking place at the GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences. A total of 110 participants, of which over 50 come from the University of Alberta as well as researchers from the participating Helmholtz centres FZJ, GFZ, KIT und UFZ will be taking part in this event. In addition, representatives from the Canadian Embassy, the ALBERTA Germany Office, Munich, as well as from the Helmholtz Headquarters will also be attending the HAI Workshop.
The Helmholtz-Alberta-Initiative (HAI) is a research collaboration between the Helmholtz Association and the University of Alberta encompassing different key questions in the field of energy and environmental research.
Within the framework of HAI, German and Canadian scientists together research, from the scientific point of view, fundamental questions of landscape development, tailings water management, the use of deep geothermal energy, the separation and storage of CO2 as well as the energy efficient upgrading of bitumen. Respective research work can, among others contribute to an environmental friendly and energy-efficient processing of oil sands. The international promotion of the next generation earth scientists is likewise a key objective within HAI.
