    Building on a History of Collaboration & Innovation

    A Network of Networks

    The Clean Resource Innovation Network (CRIN) is a pan-Canadian network founded to enable clean energy development by commercializing and adopting technologies for the oil and gas industry.

    We bring together diverse expertise from industry, entrepreneurs, investors, academia, governments, and many others to enable solutions that improve the industry’s environmental and economic performance. We believe that these solutions will be applied across Canadian industries and around the globe, and that energy development and environmental stewardship together will have local, national and international benefits.
