About LOOKNorth

LOOKNorth is a Canadian Centre of Excellence for Commercialization and Research hosted by C-CORE at Memorial University (St. John’s, NL).  In collaboration with a broad network of industry, business and research partners, its purpose is to verify and commercialize monitoring technologies that support safe and sustainable resource development in Canada’s North.

LOOKNorth focuses on the natural resource sector, especially the oil and gas, mining, and hydro electric sectors as well as the transportation sector related to these.  The monitoring technologies of interest are those related to remote sensing technologies, and derived data products and services which can provide information and knowledge to the natural resource sectors to overcome knowledge gaps and improve safety and cost effectiveness of operations, accelerate permitting, and make a positive impact to project economics.
