World Ocean Tech and Innovation Summit

October 14 2020 @ 8:00 AM - October 15 2020 @ 5:00 PM

There are many reasons to believe the ocean is the next economic frontier. Innovative ideas and cutting-edge technologies are enabling the development of industry solutions and spurring new economic activity in the ocean, reimagining traditional maritime industries and fostering emerging ones. To help meet the growing global demand for more protein, more energy, the ability to move our goods, and other expanded commercial opportunities, we can look to the ocean.

But, it’s not without impact that our oceans have been developed over the years: the fragile ecosystem’s health is at risk today with rising ocean temperatures, acidification, and pollution. It’s for that reason that the commercial potential of the ocean will only be realised through sustainable growth, balancing the commercial opportunities with the health of the ocean.

Innovative technologies are a key enabler of ocean sustainability, its further economic development, and its investor appeal. Bridging investment gaps, catalysing collaboration, sourcing and deploying the best talent, tracking progress, and embracing innovation are all factors at the foundation of our collective ocean opportunity.

The Economist Events’ World Ocean Tech and Innovation Summit, hosted by Canada’s Ocean Supercluster in collaboration with the Province of Nova Scotia and the Halifax Partnership, will convene innovators, business leaders, thought leaders and investors to learn about and engage with the latest “blue economy” innovators and technologies, and identify solutions that will form the roadmap to a sustainable, thriving ocean economy.
Taking place in Halifax, Canada, the two-day programme will showcase local innovations that have the potential to be scaled globally, and welcome international business leaders, investors and scientists to share learnings and unleash new opportunities for cross-border partnership and investment.

Host sponsor: Canada’s Ocean Supercluster
In collaboration with: Nova Scotia, The Halifax Partnership and Creative Destruction Lab
