Atlantic Canada Wins Ocean Supercluster Bid
February 15th, 2018
Congratulations to all the partners of the Ocean Supercluster who have been selected as one of the 5 winning bids for the Innovation Superclusters Initiative. We are very excited to see this announcement as it represents the next level of investment in Atlantic Canada’s ocean sector. Together 25 partners from across the region are contributing over 200 million over the next 5 years. The industry funds will be matched by up to 250 million from the program. The funding will be used to tackle challenges in the ocean economy in areas ranging from deep-sea fish farming and resource development to big data.
We already have some great things happening here like: ocean monitoring in Newfoundland; tidal energy testing in Nova Scotia, fish food innovation in Prince Edward Island; and industry-leading subsea imaging from rural Newfoundland. We are excited about the opportunities for our members and where we can go next.
