The Canadian Ocean Industries Student Research Awards are in their fourth consecutive year
These awards are designed for post-secondary undergraduate and graduate students in Canada and around the world who are interested in pursuing ocean industries-related studies and research in Newfoundland and Labrador at Memorial University, its Marine Institute, or the College of the North Atlantic.
Relevant fields of study include areas such as offshore petroleum engineering, geoscience, ocean engineering, ocean technology including marine transport, fisheries, aquaculture, and other areas such as marine science that support R&D, innovation and the commercialization of ocean technologies.
This year, RDC has introduced a new aspect to the OISRA award structure: students receiving awards at the Master’s and Doctoral level are required to have industry collaboration involved with their research. This change came from recognizing the need to increase student engagement in Newfoundland and Labrador’s ocean industries. This requirement will strengthen relationships between the business community and academia, as well as open up potential career opportunities. More information about mandatory industry collaboration is available in the OISRA guidelines
