There is still space available to attend in-person. Onsite networking, a tour, and one-on-one meetings with presenters, BCIP companies, and other program partners will be part of the afternoon agenda.
You are invited to be part of the conversation on June 22nd at the St. Andrews Biological Station. Join the Office of Small and Medium Enterprises of Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) to learn about the Build in Canada Innovation Program (BCIP) and showcase your innovations to potential end users across the Government of Canada.
The BCIP is a procurement program, launched as part of the government of Canada’s commitment to promote Canada’s economic growth as announced in Budget 2012. The BCIP helps Canadian businesses to bridge the pre-commercialization gap that many businesses face in moving their innovative goods and services from the laboratory to the marketplace.
This conversation will focus on Fisheries and Oceans Canada, their operational challenges, and the areas they are seeking innovations. Some of the areas on their innovation wish list include but are not limited to:
- Underwater cameras,
- Unmanned aerial vehicles,
- Autonomous underwater vehicles,
- Surface drifters,
- pH and oxygen control systems,
- Anti-corrosion applications,
- Image analysis
Participants will have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with representatives from BCIP, PWGSC, Fisheries and Oceans Canada and others. This is also a prime opportunity to network with other Canadian businesses involved in the development of innovative goods and services
