Industry and Innovation

Partnering with opportunity

Dalhousie is Atlantic Canada’s idea engine for a knowledge-based economy. We employ a large number of highly qualified personnel and produce more than 1,000 highly qualified graduate students, post-doctoral scientists and scholars each year.

Research in action

Our researchers are actively involved in helping small- and large-scale industries in Nova Scotia and around the world, by developing new products, services and processes.

Our expertise leads to the creation of new companies and attracts international corporations to the region. We also support research, innovation and commercialization by making our state-of-the-art facilities accessible to local industry.

The resulting commercialization of research creates jobs, more competitive industries, increased productivity and better goods and services for the public.
