Ocean Supercluster Update and Information Session

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

Date: Monday, October 30th
Time:2:00 PM to 4:00 PM
Location: 1 Arctic Ave, NRC-OCRE Building, St. John’s

On October 10th, the Government of Canada (GOC) kicked off the announcement that the Ocean Supercluster submission from Atlantic Canada is one of the nine industry consortiums across the country that will compete in the final round of Ottawa’s $950M Innovation Supercluster initiative. The “Oceans Supercluster” is a consortium of Atlantic Canadian marine-based companies, innovators, and researchers. Full applications are due from these shortlisted groups by November 24th and the government plans to announce up to five successful bids in early 2018.

With the news that Atlantic Canada’s dynamic and innovation-driven Oceans Supercluster is one critical step closer to being designated one of Canada’s few globally significant innovation Superclusters, business leaders and key stakeholders across the region are asking two key questions:

  • What does this mean for me and my company?
  • How can I help make this happen?

At 2:00 p.m. on October 30th at the NRC-OCRE Building several of the key architects of Atlantic Canada’s comprehensive and integrated Oceans Supercluster bid will be in St. John’s to answer these and other key questions about the success of the Round I proposal, as well as, what success in Round II would mean for our community.

It is a discussion you will not want to miss. Your support and active participation along, with Atlantic colleagues and counterparts, will likely prove critical to the success of the collective efforts going forward.
