Safe, affordable and efficient energy storage technologies are an important component of a low-carbon economy. LiBTec, a new industrial research and development (R&D) group launched by the National Research Council of Canada (NRC), is looking to advance the lithium-ion battery value chain in Canada by working with industrial partners to accelerate the development and testing of key materials and components in partnership with its leading researchers in the field.

New medicines are no longer one-size-fits-all. Therapies are more complex, manufactured in smaller batches and personalized for specific patient groups or even individuals. New pharmaceutical manufacturing technologies with greater flexibility, cost-effectiveness and quality assurance are needed to make those therapies. Vanrx's use of automation limits human interactions and the possibility of introducing contaminants to support manufacturers in meeting stringent quality regulations.
A new ground-breaking research collaboration between the National Research Council (NRC) and the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) is showing that green buildings can also contribute to a more productive workforce.
