New innovation sandbox at Dal looks to foster talent, economic growth

January 14, 2019

A new space at Dalhousie University is looking to bring together multidisciplinary teams to develop ideas and innovative solutions that tackle important local and global problems. Dal reports that SURGE, which is short for Science Unleashed: Research Growing the Economy, is an innovation “sandbox” that joins nine other similar centres in NS, which are all working to foster talent development and economic growth in the region. The university also reports that SURGE is located between the two core facilities in Dal’s Faculty of Science, making it a natural fit to funnel talent into provincial science-based sectors such as oceans, clean technology, and life sciences. Dal (NS)
