The first stream of the Springboard 360° Series (SB360°) was focused on Cleantech, a natural starting point for the SB360° given government’s commitment to net-zero emissions, the important research and development already underway among our members, and the opportunities to transition Atlantic Canada to a cleaner economy.
The recommendations of the committee were to build up and increase engagement between industry and academia based on the identified needs within the report. Connector events will be held to address challenge statements and further assess opportunities for technology development. There are already initiatives underway to understand communities needs in terms of energy transition, and other research is being conducted around waste to value.
This report is a summary of the valuable work of our SB360°: Cleantech Innovation Advisory Committee, comprising 12 experts convened by Springboard, and the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency to identify and articulate our regional priorities within the Cleantech sector.
