This is your invitation to learn more about three cutting edge engineering projects making headlines at Memorial University and explore innovative R&D opportunities with top notch researchers. This information session will be held June 14,  10:00 AM – 1:00 PM at the NRC Building, Arctic Ave. MUN Campus.

Oceans Advance, Memorial University of Newfoundland, the Newfoundland Association of Technology Industries, and the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency, are pleased to present this information session to introduce you to the key players and details of three of Memorial’s hottest Ocean Technology R&D projects. These projects are lead by MUN’s Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, and are principally funded by ACOA’s Atlantic Innovation Fund.

The session consists of three presentations, to be followed by a networking lunch with representatives of regional funding agencies in attendance.

The first presentation features Principal Investigator Dr. Vlasta Masek and Project Manager Andrew Cook of Seaformatics as they present a project overview, discuss research objectives, and reveal preliminary results.

The second presentaion on Intelligent Sensor Platforms.  Expect and intelligent and sensitive overview of  the project and the research objectives from principal investigator Dr. Nick Krouglicof and project manager Dr. Kaaren May as they discuss industrial outreach opportunities for mechatronic development and prototyping facilities.

The third presentation deals with the Responsive Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Localization and Mapping (REALM) projects at Memorial and will feature the laid-back style of project manager Mr. Ron Lewis as he dives into the details of industrial outreach opportunities within the Marine Environmental Research Laboratory for Intelligent Vehicles.

Rounding out the session will be an overview of the AIF Round 2012 Request for Letters of Intent and Project Proposals. Representatives from other funding and partnering organizations, such as the Research Development Corporation (RDC), the Department of Innovation, Business and Rural Development (IBRD), the National Research Council (NRC), and Memorial will also be available.

This event is supported by the NATI Ocean Technology Commercialization project.

Please RSVP to Cathy Hogan at cathy.hogan@oceansadvance.net NO later than Tuesday, June 12, 2012.

NOTE: Parking is available at the newly constructed MUN Multi-Level Garage just west of the NRC Building.
