September 6, 2016

Nova Scotia Community College is set to create a newly refurbished ocean innovation centre with $19.7M in support from the federal and Nova Scotia governments. A federal release states that the Centre for Ocean Ventures and Entrepreneurship will give ocean scientists and researchers the chance to work with start-ups, industry, and Nova Scotia postsecondary institutions to foster marine innovation. NSCC President Don Bureaux noted that the new initiative “fits so well with the teaching, applied research and industry training work we do in oceans technology and advanced manufacturing at the College, so we're very excited to see this tremendous investment today, which will get the project in full gear.” CBC | Canada
