This Week's Highlights

Call for Themes: NEIA’s Innovation Roundtables

NOTE: This opportunity has expired or is an event which has already taken place.

NEIA would like to foster innovation in the environmental sector by developing sustained and meaningful connections between firms, academia, regulators, funding bodies and other key stakeholders – with a view to building, sustaining, or extending the competitive advantage of Newfoundland and Labrador firms competing internationally.

These objectives will be pursued by NEIA’s Innovation Roundtables.

These roundtables will meet on a reoccurring basis for the purpose of knowledge mobilization, confronting challenges and opportunities, promoting research collaboration, and expediting initiatives aimed at sustaining / building competitive advantage. Roundtables would focus on a specific topic directly linked to an area of local competitive advantage.

It is NEIA’s intention not to pursue more than two roundtables. The selection of table topics would be based on:

  • evidence / prospect of competitive advantage linked to the proposed research area
  • the interest and capacity of researchers and firms to pursue the topic
  • the willingness of key stakeholders to collaborate.

NEIA undertakes a portfolio of innovation activities including info sessions delivered by partners (e.g. Office of Small and Medium Enterprises, Canadian Intellectual Property Office, Scientific Research and Experimental Development Tax Incentive Program, etc.), a firm-level research and commercialization initiative, research matching events, and conferences showcasing advancements in the environmental sector.

The Innovation roundtables are designed to complement these activities.

If you are interested in NEIA’s Innovation Roundtables and would like to suggest possible themes, please contact NEIA’s Executive Director Ted Lomond directly at ted@neia.org.
