Innovation in NL

Innovation transcends across all industries and creates greater opportunities for competitiveness, expanded markets, and economic growth. Innovation can occur anywhere, not just in research labs, large corporations and universities. It is driven by small businesses looking for more economical ways to make products or to get products to market, and by communities seeking ways to use their resources more efficiently and effectively, or to attract new industries.

Newfoundland and Labrador is full of promise; the growth has been exceptional in important sectors including information technology, ocean technology, oil and gas and the green economy.

We know that with collaboration comes new ideas and opportunities, and it is through initiatives like Innovation Week, that we will inspire and engage people to play an active role in accelerating the opportunity for innovation in our province.

Innovation Week 2019 will build on the success of previous Innovation Weeks as it brings together private and public partners and stakeholders to learn from, share and demonstrate innovation in the province. Throughout the week of April 29th – May 3rd, 2019, we will showcase our start-up communities and environmental sector, embrace youth in technology and much more!
