About the #OceanofOppportunities Webinar Series 

The Ocean Startup Project is hosting a series of webinars that focus on celebrating the successes of regional, national and international ocean innovators and thought leaders. The webinar series will promote the opportunities that exist in Atlantic Canada’s ocean sector and inspire people in the region to start or grow their own ocean venture.

About the Ocean Startup Project 

The Ocean Startup Project, driven by Canada’s Ocean Supercluster, is a pan-Atlantic collaboration between Creation Destruction Lab (CDL) – Atlantic, Genesis, Innovacorp, New Brunswick Innovation Foundation, PEI BioAlliance, and Springboard Atlantic. The Project is an ambitious 24-month strategy to create and grow ocean technology companies through a number of initiatives, such as industry innovation and technology problem identification; engage cafes and cootcamps; Ocean startup challenge competition; a university lab-to-market program; and CDL’s ocean stream.

We will be joined by special guests, Dr. Jim Bellingham the founding Director of the Center of Marine Robotics at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI), and Dr. Mae Seto, Associate Professor & Irving Chair in Marine Engineering and Autonomous Systems at Dalhousie University.

More about Dr. Jim Bellingham
Jim is a pioneer in the development of small, high performance Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs). His company Bluefin Robotics has created a class of systems that are now widely used within the military, industry and scientific communities. Additionally, he has spent a considerable amount of time at sea, leading over 20 AUV expeditions in locations such as the Antarctic, North Atlantic, Mediterranean, South Pacific, and the Arctic.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

More about Dr. Mae Seto 
Dr. Seto worked in private industry (ISE Research Ltd., Pt. Coquitlam, Canada) for six years on research and development projects related to autonomous underwater vehicles. She moved to Nova Scotia to work as a defence scientist for Defence R&D Canada. Dr. Seto is currently an Associate Professor at the Dalhousie Department of Mechanical Engineering, where her research interests include the Intelligent Systems Laboratory and computer science to enable autonomous systems to operate at long ranges from an operator for extended durations in harsh and dynamic environments like oceans and space.
