The Institute for Ocean Research Enterprise (IORE), on behalf of COVE, is seeking the services of a consultant to develop a strategy and approach for long term strategic identification, cultivation, solicitation and stewardship of corporate sponsors for COVE (see www.coveocean.com for more details).
COVE is a collaborative facility for applied innovation in the ocean sector. Our mission is to propel the ocean economy by providing high-quality marine infrastructure and a collaborative space in which a community of ocean enterprises can start, grow and prosper. Our primary goal is to support ocean technology commercialization.
Located on the Halifax Harbour, this hub is home to local and global ocean technology businesses post-secondary institutions, researchers, and marine-based service businesses that support the ocean sector. The COVE site is about to begin operations and features extensive marine facilities with two large, deep-water piers, office space, an incubator and space for shops and labs.
