June 2022 – Kelly Sears is supporting HAL Consulting to conduct a socio-economic impact study of TRIUMF, which is Canada’s national particle accelerator centre located on the campus of the University of British Columbia. It provides world-class facilities for research in sub-atomic physics, accelerator science, life sciences and materials science. The facility receives funding from the National Research Council. The study will involve interviews with representatives of TRIUMF, its spin-off companies and industry partners to collect information related to the quantification of impacts. Several case studies will be conducted to illustrate the benefits to Canada resulting from TRIUMF’s activities.
