AGRG Receives AIF Funding

On Monday, 21 January 2008, Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA) Minister Peter MacKay announced a federal investment of $63 million in 29 R&D projects in Atlantic Canada under Round V of the Government of Canada’s Atlantic Innovation Fund (AIF). The Applied Geomatics Research Group will receive up to $3 million under AIF, which will leverage an additional $2 million in funding from other sources.

The funding will be used to develop and commercialize a suite of technology products, processes and services for the environmental assessment and management of watershed quality. The project will enhance the region’s applied research capacity and expertise and will help attract national and international business and private investment to Annapolis County in rural Nova Scotia.
