Canada’s Ocean Supercluster (OSC) has launched its 2024 AI Ocean Call for Proposals. This new call program is focused on the accelerated advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in ocean, recognizing its substantial potential to profoundly influence the future, health, and prosperity of the world’s oceans.
Through Ambition 2035, Canada has a five times growth, $220 billion potential in the ocean economy. The pervasive use of AI in operational decision-making is poised to significantly shape global opportunities and contribute to transformational growth in Canada’s sustainable ocean economy.
Through its AI Ocean Program, the OSC will collaboratively invest with industry partners in successful project proposals. This financial support aims to provide the necessary means for companies to secure the capabilities required for Canadian firms to establish and maintain a competitive global position.
This Call for Proposals is a deadline-driven and competitive framework, providing companies seeking to co-invest with the OSC an avenue to enhance their AI knowledge, capabilities, and overall competitiveness.
The deadline for submitting an Expression of Interest (EOI) to the AI Ocean Call for Proposals is February 27th, 2024, at 8:00PM Atlantic | 7:00PM Eastern | 4:00pmPM Pacific. Full program guidelines can be found here [LINK]. Complete EOI submissions must be submitted via email to: AI@oceansupercluster.ca.
