This will mark NEIA’s fourth research matching event, with each of the three previous resulting in collaborations between industry and academia – collaborations supported by funding agencies. It is an opportunity for firms to discover local research expertise with an eye to solving existing challenges or generate new business ideas and initiatives.
Newleef is Newfoundland and Labrador’s premier green economy event. An annual conference now in its fourth year, Newleef brings industry, academia, government, and the community together to discuss the growth and diversification of the province’s economy through the protection of, mitigation of effects to, or enhancement of the natural environment.
Newfoundland and Labrador’s green economy conference – Newleef 2015 – has expanded with the addition of a significant component dedicated to opportunities and growth in the province’s forestry sector. “The forestry sector does not get the public attention it deserves. There are many opportunities for innovation and economic growth,” says Ted Lomond, Executive Director of NEIA.
“We are pleased with the provincial government for working with the international community to collectively address climate change,” says Ted Lomond, Executive Director NEIA. “Building climate change action partnerships and sharing expertise abroad is beneficial for the growth of our local green economy.”
