UNB receives over $2.1M to upgrade, augment CNER equipment


The University of New Brunswick will be upgrading key scientific equipment at its Centre for Nuclear Energy Research (CNER) and improving its research capabilities, thanks to over $2.1M in combined funding from the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency and New Brunswick Innovation Foundation. The funding will support upgrades and the augmentation of the CNER’s high-temperature water test systems. The university will also use the funds to purchase equipment and undertake renovations for the establishment of the CNER’s Advanced Nuclear Research Laboratory. “The CNER is an important part of our contribution to creating sustainable energy futures for our province, our country, and the world,” said UNB President Dr Paul J Mazerolle. “This investment will enable them to expand the capability of the Centre and further strengthen their leading-edge expertise.”
