Connecting research and industry
OceansAdvance, Springboard Atlantic and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) are co-sponsoring the workshop, on Thursday, March 10, from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. in the Atlantic Room of the Ocean, Coastal and River Engineering Building (NRC Building) on the St. John's Campus. Companies will be given an opportunity to make brief three-minute “elevator-style pitch” presentations to academic and institutional participants who will, in turn, make similar pitches outlining their research capabilities. Representatives from participating organizations and agencies will be available to discuss project concepts and answer questions. To participate, contact Marc Kielley, associate director, Major Research Partnerships, Office of the Vice-President (Research), at email@example.com, by Monday, March 7.
