E-award for innovation

Continuing Studies' eBusiness program has been awarded the 2001 Innovative Programming Award by the University Continuing Education Association (UCEA).

Launched last fall by Continuing Studies and the Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration's Centre for Management Development, the 10-month part-time eBusiness certificate program is designed to teach people to understand the business models for the networked economy and Internet technologies that support them.

Established in 1915, UCEA is a professional association of public and private Canadian and American universities. The UCEA award is given to programs demonstrating an original concept and approach as evaluated by reviewers throughout North America.

Research Synergy Award

The UBC Geophysical Inversion Facility, directed by Prof. Douglas Oldenburg of the Earth and Ocean Science Dept., has been awarded the Leo Derikx Synergy Award from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC).

The award recognizes the facility for its outstanding university-industry research and development partnership with INCO Exploration and Technical Services and a consortium of 11 mining companies from around the world.

The facility's research focuses on developing software capable of producing 3-D images of what lies beneath the earth's surface.

The technique, which is identical to medical imaging, will lead the way to more accurately determining the location of mineral deposits.

The award, co-sponsored by the Conference Board of Canada, provides a $25,000 research grant for the university research partner.
