The Energi Simulation / Frank and Sarah Meyer Collaboration Centre was made possible by a generous donation from Energi Simulation (formerly Foundation CMG) and named after the Founder of Foundation CMG Frank Meyer and his wife Sarah Meyer. This hub for advanced visualization and analysis provides vital space, expertise and leading-edge technologies for the faculty, researchers and students of the University of Calgary and the broader community of Calgary.
This research lab allows students, researchers and industry partners to work in a collaborative and unbiased facility to integrate advanced technology, tools and techniques in order to address simulation and visualization challenges. This includes the integration of augmented reality, virtual reality, machine learning, artificial intelligence and big data techniques to deliver next-generation applications. We provide leading-edge infrastructure to facilitate exploration, comprehension and analysis across a multitude of interdisciplinary domains. This includes outreach and training to the general public, youth and minorities. We encourage collaboration and cooperation between many different domains, including but not limited to Petroleum Engineering, Science, Medicine, Art, and Education.
Our mission is to bring our research excellence, subject matter expertise and facilities together to forward positive and mutually beneficial outcomes between industry and academia. We nurture community-engaging activities to transform visualization and analytical paradigms and uncover the unbounded potential for discovery. With the facilities at the Collaboration Centre, combined with our team of experts, we deliver novel visualization and analysis approaches to meet the needs of our collaborators and the community.
