COSIA has become a leader in open-source innovation, which is achieving major performance improvement in our environmental priority areas of water, greenhouse gases, tailings and land.
As the next chapter in innovation leadership, COSIA is taking the bold step of releasing all Innovation Opportunities which can benefit from broader, global collaboration. There are more than 60 of them, categorized by COSIA Environmental Priority Areas (EPAs).
If you're interested, sign up for our email list, follow our social media channels, submit an idea through our E-TAP system and check here regularly for more information. COSIA technical staff are also available to provide more information and answer specific questions.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 403-444-4282.
What is an Innovation Opportunity?
COSIA's Innovation Opportunities provide focused, actionable descriptions of the current state of opportunities related to environmental processes and impacts of the oil sands industry.
- We include desired outcomes without prescribing the means for reaching those outcomes.
- The Innovation Opportunities include research and technology opportunities, from incremental - because the small things add up - through to the game-changers with the potential to propel industry forward.
- Each represents a possibility that, if realized, would contribute towards the achievement of COSIA's environmental aspirations.
Who Do We Want to Hear From?
If you're an academic, researcher, innovator, inventor, entrepreneur, large company, or really anyone with an idea or potential innovation - we want to hear from you. After all, one never knows from where the next great idea will come.
