As part of its 2006/2007 strategic plan, OceansAdvance proposed to undertake the development of an oceans technology cluster map for Newfoundland and Labrador. During a visit to Israel in June 2006, led by the Canadian – Israel Industrial Research and Development Foundation (CIIRDF), delegates were presented with a marine technology map commissioned by CIIRDF and developed by an Israeli company, d&a high-tech information Ltd. The map presented a visual representation that captures the entire marine sector in Israel. As a follow-up to the visit, NRC/IRAP expressed an interest in the development of such a map for the Newfoundland and Labrador ocean technology sector. Similar interest had been expressed by the NL Provincial Department of Innovation, Trade and Rural Development.
The initiative resulted in the development of an oceans technology sector cluster map for the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador.
The map is divided into sectors. Each of the sectors can be accessed simply by clicking on the sector you wish to explore. You can then link directly to any of the ocean technology companies within that area of interest. This map will be updated on a yearly basis.
