All OSC stakeholders are encouraged to come to the launch of the Ocean Supercluster’s IP and Data strategies, two integral components of technology leadership programs and projects, and important strategic frameworks for a strong and dynamic Supercluster.  

The OSC has developed a forward-looking data strategy that aims to foster information exchange between ocean industries and provide a clear vision on how we can transform data generated from project activities into a strategic national asset.  

The IP strategy aims to incent high-impact collaborations, provide a foundation for the development of flexible and predictable IP policies, ensure members are able to secure appropriate rights that are in line with their commercial interests, and position Canadian organizations to maximize the return of their innovations.
