I'm from the government and I'm here to help
NRC Herzberg Institute of Astrophysics
I will give an overview of the NRC Herzberg astronomy technology program, why we exist, who we are, and what we are currently involved in. I will also speak to the ways in which we engage with Canadian universities, and work through some current examples. This will include instrument collaborations, advanced technology research, and graduate student and postdoc engagements. My goal is to convince you that the cynical title is actually a reality of ways that we can work together.
