Innovacorp is proud to announce its partnership with the National Research Council’s (NRC) Atlantic Initiative.

The Synergy! Initiative pilot project will benefit Nova Scotia-based life sciences companies by combining the business expertise of Innovacorp’s mentoring team and the technology development expertise of NRC. The goal is to create synergy between Innovacorp’s life sciences clients and NRC’s programs, and to assist clients in funding and conducting research activities that would otherwise be difficult to complete.

Eligible life sciences clients will be referred to NRC by the Innovacorp mentoring team, and will receive the necessary technology development support at NRC’s Institute for Marine Biosciences (IMB). The scientists at IMB will offer technology development assistance at no cost to clients. NRC has allocated $50,000 to the Synergy! Initiative for 2007-2008.
