In 2007, Matthew Pyper recognized a need to bridge the gap between researchers and decision makers and has been pursuing this passion ever since. As a graduate student he developed an appreciation for the importance of science in resource management, and began to understand the challenges faced by industrial and government agencies in applying that knowledge.
He then joined a team of Science Communicators at the Sustainable Forest Management Network and began working with government and industry practitioners across Canada to translate research findings into applications. As the network closed Matthew took the opportunity to build a knowledge exchange program in the Department of Renewable Resources at the University of Alberta. There, he continued working with academics to synthesize and communicate research applications in formats that were relevant and accessible to industry and government.
In 2014, Fuse Consulting Ltd. was born as the next stage in this journey.
