Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL) and Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL) announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the University of Waterloo to pursue collaborative research opportunities within Canada’s nuclear landscape.
CNL is Canada’s premier nuclear science and technology organization. The collaborative partnership offers Waterloo researchers access to a wide range of advanced nuclear facilities, including AECL’s Chalk River Laboratories, Canada’s largest nuclear science campus, which hosts specialized facilities dedicated to nuclear fuel development and testing, biological research, analytical chemistry, thermal-hydraulics and mechanical testing.
“We are pleased to partner with CNL and AECL on advancing research in critical areas that align with our mutual priorities. This collaboration will fuel innovation and advance training in key areas, including additive manufacturing, clean energy, and security, areas that are important for Canada's future,” says Dr. Charmaine B. Dean, Vice-President, Research and International, University of Waterloo.
