Join us as we match today’s toughest environmental challenges with the region’s best and brightest minds.

  • Get new ideas that help your business
  • Meet potential R&D collaborator
  • Learn about R&D funding opportunities

Here’s how it works:

 

The main activity of the night is a set of quick presentations – like speed-dating – where companies and researchers can explain their interests and expertise.

 

Companies will present brief (3 minute) overviews of their business, their key challenges or areas of interest, and the type of research expertise they are seeking.

 

Then, researchers provide their own brief (3 minute) presentations on their research interests and expertise, and potential application to industry. Researchers are selected according to the relevance of their expertise to the needs of the companies presenting.

 

Companies and researchers involved in previous Connector events have expressed high value in participating. They cite new ideas, collaborations, funding connections, and R&D projects as some of the benefits. Representatives from R&D funding agencies will be on hand to provide information about their programs and other ways they can provide support.

 

Whether you are a researcher or company, this event will be a valuable opportunity for introductions, conversations and intelligence-gathering for your next great idea.

 

If you’d like to do a 3-minute presentation, please contact:

 

Sue Coueslan (Genome Atlantic) 

 

Katie Kushner (Springboard Atlantic) 

 

Otherwise, please just register for the event so we can be sure to accommodate all who want to attend.

 

Hope to see you there!
