Industrial Day

22 October 2010 CAMBAM hosted its first Industrial Day. The strategic objectives were to facilitate interaction between the  multi-disciplinary CAMBAM members and individuals from the industrial community and showcase the research work of CAMBAM members.  The evening’s program objectives were to create opportunities for collaboration.  Michael Mackey, the Director, provided an overview of the Centre after which different CAMBAM members made presentations on their ongoing research. Presentations were made by Fahima Nekka, Mitchel Benovoy and Sam Musallam, Patrick Boyle, Leon Glass, Kevin Ha and Alan Evans. The presentations were followed by a panel discussion which sought to gather from the representatives of the companies who participated, their opinions on how CAMBAM can be of benefit to them. Panelists included Jesse Vincent-Herscovici from MITACS, Jerome Losson from KKR (London), Catherin Foley, from the Caisse de Dépôt and Sion Balass from Matrix Advanced Solutions.  There was also a poster viewing session presented by active members from the different groups.
