Southeast College’s new centre will drive opportunities for a low-carbon future, with a focus on applied research, training and entrepreneurship
Coal was one of the first commodities to be mined in Saskatchewan, but a college in the heart of the province’s coalfields is preparing the province for a low-carbon future.
Southeast College in Estevan has received a grant of up to $200,000 through the Municipal Coal Transition Funding Committee towards first-year start-up costs for its Centre of Sustainable Innovation in Estevan. The official presentation took place Jan. 23 at the college’s Estevan campus.
The centre, now in operation, reflects the importance of sustainable innovation in the growth of industries across the province. The centre will be home to applied research, just-in-time learning and entrepreneurship in support of sustainability and innovation.
