The Nova Scotia government announced Thursday it will contribute $1.75 million over the next 5 years to the development of a new Halifax Marine Research Institute, which can provide training for people, apply research to new public policy, and increase the scale, quality, and impact of marine research. Led by Dalhousie University, the institute will link the province's academic and public sector marine-related research organizations with ocean-technology businesses to create long-term economic benefits in Nova Scotia.
