An Ocean of Opportunity

Nova Scotia has become a world-class hub of innovation for research and technology in the oceans sector. There are currently more than 300 diverse companies involved in this industry providing goods and services in fisheries, tourism, shipbuilding, life sciences, renewable energy and marine science and research, to name a few. Including spin-offs, ocean related industries generate approximately 12.2% of Nova Scotia’s overall GDP. This has created an ocean of opportunity for start-ups and businesses looking to get involved. The Halifax Chamber of Commerce and our Presenting Partner, Dalhousie University Rowe School of Business, invites you to join us for a discussion with the leaders at the forefront of the ocean industry in Nova Scotia to take a deep dive into the potential of the blue economy. During the panel discussion, we’ll hear about the work they’re doing at their respective institutions and the opportunities available to the business community. In the last half hour, we’ll finish off with a live Q&A where members can ask their questions directly to the experts. Register today and submit your question! Register Now

tech{LAB} Underwater Eye Spy with SuperNOVA

Take a deep dive under the surface of the ocean with a SuperNOVA instructor as we explore underwater habitats around Halifax, Nova Scotia through a Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV). Participants will follow along with animal and plant identification keys to identify species in our survey and add to our public database of marine sightings and species! An ROV or a remotely operated vehicle is an underwater submersible that is driven from the ocean’s surface rather than from within the vehicle itself. This means with ROVs, you don’t have to send humans deep in the ocean where there’s no oxygen, very little light and a lot of pressure. REGISTER
