Canadian Institute for Science and Innovation Policy

Nuclear power offers the potential of reliable electricity for both the developing and developed world while addressing the need to curb carbon emissions in order to reduce the impact of climate change.

The Johnson-Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy is establishing the Canadian Institute for Science and Innovation Policy to research and address complex policy issues related to innovation, science and technology. With the support of the Sylvia Fedoruk Canadian Centre for Nuclear Innovation, one of CISIP’s first major research programs will investigate social and policy issues related to nuclear energy.

In particular, this includes how to have meaningful and constructive public engagement on issues related to the benefits and risks of nuclear development and other complex technological issues.
