Atlantic Canada’s commercialization and industry liaison network

About Us

The Story

Springboard provides strategically positioned resources to Atlantic Canadian universities and colleges alike, helping them transfer both knowledge and technology into the private sector.

Our network is comprised of members from 14 Atlantic Canadian universities and five community colleges respectively. Leveraging their affiliations and expertise in concert, they work to connect publicly funded research with industry experts through a range of programs.

Connecting skilled professionals in academia with like-minded contacts in industry drives new collaborations and supports research commercialization in Atlantic Canada. With core support from its members, and from the Government of Canada (through the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency, or ACOA), Springboard is building economic advantages for the Atlantic Region every day. We hope you’ll join us in this endeavour.
