Pacific Blue Cross Opens Big-Data Lab at Simon Fraser University
Nov 10 15
Pacific Blue Cross announced opening of big-data lab at Simon Fraser University. Using big data to improve healthcare delivery, decision-making and outcomes is the target of a new research partnership between Simon Fraser University (SFU) and Pacific Blue Cross (PBC). The Pacific Blue Cross Health Informatics Lab, housed at SFU, will advance computational health research and provide a new venue for collaboration between industry and academia. Health informatics-tools for managing and delivering healthcare, including the collection, use and disclosure of information-lies at the intersection of healthcare delivery, computing science and information technology. The lab will bring together faculty members from several key disciplines at SFU, including data science, big data, statistics, health science, business administration, information visualization and communication, as well as security and privacy. Pacific Blue Cross provides a wide range of health insurance benefits for 1.5 million British Columbians. It is investing $300,000 over three years to collaborate with leading researchers from SFU, to build the reputation of its existing Innovation Centre, and to enable the transfer of knowledge from SFU to PBC in the area of health informatics.
SFU Furthers Collaboration with Indian Oil on Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Tech Research
Oct 15 14
Simon Fraser University and Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) Ltd., furthered the collaboration they announced earlier this year with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding in New Delhi. The signing took place during the B.C. Premier's India Mission and builds on an agreement between SFU and IOC to partner on hydrogen and fuel cell research. The research will focus particularly on clean energy technology and advanced materials. Under the arrangement, Indian Oil is providing a fellowship towards the SFU PhD program which will allow Indian citizens to spend one year at SFU and a further three years at Indian Oil's R&D Centre. SFU will provide a stipend and tuition award during the year at SFU.
Ultra Electronics Maritime Systems Inc. Sign Collaborative Research Agreement with the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council, Department of National Defence, Defence Research and Development Canada and Simon Fraser University
Jul 16 14
Ultra Electronics Maritime Systems Inc. announced that it has signed a collaborative research agreement with the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the Department of National Defence (DND) and Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC), and Simon Fraser University (SFU). This three-year initiative is worth in cash and in kind, approximately $1.15 million with Ultra contributing $500,000, NSERC $420,000 and DND/DRDC $225,000. This partnership is just one facet of the Ultra's Strategic Aerospace and Defence Initiative (SADI) agreement entered into with Industry Canada. The SADI agreement provides long-term funding allowing Ultra to undertake a six-year $27.4 million internal research and development (R&D) programme that will provide competitive advantage against international competition in the fast-growing, military towed, low-frequency, active-passive market. Ultra has done similar partnering with other Canadian community colleges and universities such as the Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC), Dalhousie University and the University of New Brunswick (UNB). Specifically, the research with SFU will explore the use of Micro-Electrical-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) as accelerometers for incorporation into thin-line high fidelity directional sensors. It is envisioned that MEMS technology can be used to produce these sensors with significantly reduced diameters allowing for lighter and more manageable towed arrays.
