Are you interested in Forming a New Research Partnership with a University, College or Research Institute?

You are invited to join us for another Ocean Technology Industry-University/College/Institute Research Connections Session

When: Thursday, March 10, 2016 (9:00 am – 1:00 pm)

Location: Ocean, Coastal and River Engineering Building (NRC) – Atlantic Room, MUN Campus, 1 Arctic Avenue, St. John’s, NL.


Meet academic and institutional researchers who can respond to your company needs.  Get new ideas for research collaborations off the ground.  Companies will be given an opportunity to make a brief 3-minute elevator-pitch presentation to highlight their industrial research interests to academic and institutional participants.  Academic and institutional participants will, in turn, be invited to make similar pitches outlining their research capabilities for companies.


To help initiate new research projects responding to company needs, NSERC can provide qualifying new partnerships between Canadian university or college researchers and Canadian companies with up to $25,000 in support for a short-term R&D project that addresses a company-specific problem. No cash contribution from the industry partner is required.  Representatives from participating organizations and agencies will be available at the event to discuss project concepts and to answer any questions.


To participate in this exciting event, please RSVP by Monday, March 7, 2016 to cathy.hogan@oceansadvance.net.  A final agenda with a list of the presenters will be circulated once all participants are confirmed.
