Additionally, Innovation Networks have signed 12 contribution agreements valued at nearly $18M to fund small research networks, or Micro-nets. These research communities will increase Canadian scientific capacity in a number of areas like advanced materials (detection avoidance and physical protection), and autonomous systems (trust and barriers to adoption).

Corrosion Sandbox: Rust Never Sleeps
Test your best technologies to find corrosion trouble spots for the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN). The next IDEaS sandbox will take place at the Centre for Ocean Ventures & Entrepreneurship (COVE) facility in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia and will focus on corrosion detection on naval vessels. COVE is a collaborative facility for applied innovation in the ocean sector. Participants will get the opportunity to showcase their products on realistic simulations, with successful demonstrations resulting in access to an actual RCN vessel to demonstrate their solution in a real world environment. Watch for the Call for Applicants in January 2020.
