CARIC Teams up with Best Defence 2016

Where: London, Ontario
When: November 8-9, 2016


What is the Best Defence Conference 2016?

One of Canada’s must-attend defence and security events—bringing together Canadian and international companies to learn of Canadian defence procurement and supply chain opportunities as well as providing an intimate forum for networking between primes and Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs).

A new addition to the conference is the Technology Showcase which features novel and enabling technologies to directly support Primes, OEM and Tier 1 Customer Firms to result in long term supply and service contracts.

The Best Defence Conference offers ample B2B meeting opportunities and this year CARIC will be directly supporting these collaborative opportunities through the inaugural collaborative innovation ‘I2I’ meetings under the B2B umbrella. I2I meetings will provide industry and academia opportunities as potential collaborators to discuss research themes and capabilities. The program also offers presentations on innovation funding sources from Innovation, Science & Economic Development, CARIC and the Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE).
