The Canadian Pulp and Paper Network for Innovation in Education and Research (PAPIER) was officially launched during PaperWeek International in Montreal.
As the legacy of the Mechanical Wood-Pulps Network of Centres of Excellence, PAPIER will work with its stakeholders and partners to unite Canada’s academic and industrial communities engaged in pulp and paper research. The Network was awarded $500,000 in research management funds by the NCE Program to transform itself into a national organization of pulp and paper researchers.
In a ceremony, PAPTAC recognized PAPIER with a certificate of appreciation for its vital role in linking academic research in the pulp and paper industry in Canada since 1989.
PAPIER aims to become the primary forum for coordinating pulp and paper academic research and enhancing industry-related education and training for postgraduate students across Canada.
