Springboard is a member-based organization, supported by ACOA as well as our network members. The network is designed to grow Atlantic Canada’s innovation economy through collaboration among post-secondary institutions and industry.

Members engage these communities in two ways:

  • Pairing organizations looking for R&D support with specialized researchers found in 14 universities and 5 colleges throughout Atlantic Canada; and
  • Providing programing that supports the commercialization of post-secondary research.

By helping valuable research flow out of our universities and colleges, our network helps to accelerate Atlantic Canada’s innovation potential.
