Together in a Good Way

Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress,

and working together is success. – H.Ford

REDEVELOP is a collaboration of 11 researchers from the Universities of Calgary, Alberta, Toronto, Waterloo and Western Ontario, industry, government and the Indian Resource Council. Program lead is the University of Calgary, with a cultural model, ii’taa’poh’to’p (which means “together in a good way”), that is an integral part of student training.


1. Energy Demand Increase

Canada is facing unprecedented challenges in supplying  sustainable, cost-effective energy to meet demands due to increases in population and technology.

2. Unconventional Resources

Technology developments have unlocked vast energy resources contained in low-permeability (shale) rock formations.

3. Energy Transition

Unconventional resources, responsibly developed, are key to Canada’s transition to a low-carbon energy future, environmental sustainability, and socio-economic stability.

4. Interdisciplinary Approach

Informed decision-making within industry, govern-ment and Indigenous communities, relies on technical knowledge that crosscuts western disciplines of science and traditional knowledge.

5. Workforce Preparation

Researchers work to develop depth of knowledge in a specific area of expertise, and often overlook the soft skills needed to effectively apply that expertise.
