Bounce Health Innovation

Bounce Health Innovation (Bounce) was launched in January 2018 as a result of increasing interest in health innovation spurred from the local Hacking Health initiative – a series of open innovation networking events that connect frontline healthcare workers with developers, designers, patients, and entrepreneurs. Their mission is to accelerate the growth of the health innovation sector in Newfoundland and Labrador (NL) with a vision to help the province become the testbed for medical technology innovation in North America. They engage with and support medical innovators and entrepreneurs by leveraging resources within a unique health innovation ecosystem. They are a mini-cluster in medical technology composed of the following participating organizations: Eastern Health, Memorial University (the Memorial Centre for Entrepreneurship, and the Faculty of Medicine), Genesis, the Provincial Government, techNL, and the Newfoundland and Labrador Centre for Health Information (NLCHI).

Digitalization in Oil and Gas

Digitalization of the oil and gas industry has the potential to reduce emissions, increase competitiveness and create employment. In collaboration with Energy NL, techNL began to investigate how to leverage this opportunity for its members. Various successful events were executed such as a Big Data Oil and Gas Forum, Hacking Oil and Gas Cafés, and the first ever Oil and Gas Hackathon in NL in 2019. These events, along with a report from the Digital Transformation Working Group, highlighted the need and creation of the Digital Oil and Gas Initiative (DOI).
With continued support from Energy NL, techNL will drive the DOI to work with key industry stakeholders to focus on the identification of value producing digitalization opportunities and conduct key strategic capacity building activities for local tech companies in the oil and gas sector. By expanding our local expertise and technology skill set through the digital transformation process, the DOI will spur innovation to deliver local digital solutions for the industry on the Field of the Future.

Innovation Centre Project

Our vision is to create a world-class ecosystem for remote operations. The primary objective of the Innovation Centre (IC) is to address the technology development needs of established and growing companies – especially the ones, but not limited to, pursuing remote operations – in sectors such as ocean, energy, healthcare, mining, fisheries, transportation, and defence.

The secondary objective of the IC is to increase ecosystem collaboration and the exposure of established and growing companies to the innovation ecosystem stakeholders.
