Public lecture to focus on N.L.'s technology sector and why engineers make great entrepreneurs

Newfoundland and Labrador’s technology sector is stimulating economic growth and fostering private-sector job creation directly and indirectly through support provided to industries such as health care, oil and gas, mining, energy, fisheries, aquaculture, and more.

Today’s economic activity has shifted to a greater dependence on knowledge production and utilization. Given that knowledge and innovation play increasing roles in fostering economic competitiveness, universities have become essential players in the knowledge economy, acting as catalysts of socio-economic development.

Join us on April 27 at 7 p.m. NDT for a virtual Speaking of Engineering Public Lecture as Dr. Carlos Bazan, Memorial University’s Engineering Chair in Entrepreneurship, as he highlights Memorial University’s contributions to the local innovation and entrepreneurial ecosystem and to engineeringentrepreneurship, and why engineers make great entrepreneurs.
