Program outputs and/or outcomes

The GEM-2 Program outcomes include:

  • Long term: A strong northern economy through stable, long term investment in responsible resource development
  • Intermediate: Northerners, their institutions and exploration industry use modern regional geoscience knowledge to inform their decision making
  • Immediate:
  • Industry and Northerners are aware of and have access to new regional geoscience data and knowledge generated by GEM
  • Northerners and their institutions have access to tools that facilitate use of new regional geoscience data and knowledge generated by GEM

And its key performance measures may include but are not limited to:

  • Mobilization of the geosciences networks in the provinces, territories and academia through collaboration to advance regional geo-mapping of the North
  • Collection, acquisition and analysis of data by using and developing innovative multidisciplinary regional geo-mapping methods
  • Production of high quality innovative and integrative science products and ideas and develop geological models and regional geoscience frameworks
  • Proactive dissemination of new regional geoscience data and knowledge to diverse audiences (industry, governments, and Northerners)
  • Engagement of communities in ongoing dialogue throughout GEM project lifecycle and collaboration with Northern institutions to develop approaches and tools that facilitate the use of GEM data and knowledge by Northerners

The GEM outputs are:

  • Collaboration agreements with Provincial and Territorial surveys, academia and northern institutions focusing on geoscience research and knowledge transfer or to develop approaches to incorporate GEM results in value-added products
  • On-going community-level engagement sessions at inception, during and at project closure
  • Knowledge transfer activities that proactively disseminate GEM data and value-added knowledge (E.g. presentations, reports, conference, workshops, etc.)
  • Value-added geoscience knowledge products published (E.g. synthesis papers, maps, bulletins, synopses, report and articles)
  • New open data products delivered in a timely fashion through web accessible databases and open files
