Postcard from Turkey: Ryerson PhD candidate harnesses the sunshine of Izmir for his research projectI’ve worked on many solar projects in Canada, but we typically didn’t have enough sun to validate our research findings. The Globalink Research Award gave me a chance to work on a solar project right under the sun and apply my conclusions to the solar simulation model.
Tracking seafood from fish harvesters to consumersFrom oceans to supermarkets, seafood products are tracked from the time they are caught, all the way to when they are being purchased at the supermarket.

Finding “green” pastures in CanadaWith Canada renewing its commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions at last year’s Copenhagen summit, government and industry are seeking new solutions to mitigate global climate change. One such response lies in Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCS)—a field which Mechanical Engineering student, Surojit Ganguli can now see himself pursuing thanks to the Mitacs Globalink program.
Mitacs Accelerate research project pushing boundaries in Canada’s “green” commitmentThrough the support of Mitacs Accelerate, John Ashley Scott, a professor of biochemical engineering at Laurentian University, and Greg Ross, associate dean of research at the Northern Ontario School of Medicine were able to assemble a multi-disciplinary, multi-company research venture undertaken by seven Mitacs Accelerate interns.
