Current opportunities

Corrosion Sandbox: Call for Applicants now Open

The Corrosion Detection in Ships Sandbox is now open! Test your best solutions 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 vessel to demonstrate their solution in a real world environment. The call closes February 19, 2020.


Pop Up City Contest Now Underway

The Pop-up City: Integrated Energy, Water and Waste Management Systems for Deployed Camps contest has launched! The contest will consist of four competitive rounds, each designed to support progress towards the development of a functioning and testable prototype integrated solution. Contestants will have the chance to win more than $3.5 million during individual and group competitions. Now that the deadline for Round 1 has passed, there will be no further opportunities to enter. Watch for the winners to be announced sometime late this winter.
