Genomics and the Environment Connector Event

Published: September 30th 2015 Event date: October 21st 2015
Some of the best and brightest minds from academia and industry explained how they tackle tough environmental challenges.

This rapid fire afternoon of information and networking was like speed-dating for those seeking innovation!

Companies and researchers each had three minutes to share their interests and expertise, plus ample time to explore opportunities through networking. Representatives from federal and provincial agencies were on hand to discuss R&D funding opportunities.

Topics ranged from nanotechnology and heavy metals to tailings, remediation and migrating trees. So the potential was HUGE for new innovations.

Connections were made. Ideas were hatched. And as they say, a good time was had by all.

Special thanks to our partners, Springboard Atlantic, and the Atlantic Reclamation Conference 2015 for letting us piggyback on their great gathering of environmentally-focused minds.
