I will pivot to our guest from ACOA. During Mr. Davies' opening remarks, he mentioned the superclusters initiative to help bridge the gap between science and commercialization. I think that's how he framed it.
In Atlantic Canada, we benefited from the Atlantic innovation fund, which serves a similar purpose. I can think of one investment in my own backyard at StFX university, which is Dr. Risk's Flux Lab. It has led to the commercialization of a technology that detects gas leaks in energy infrastructure. It can reduce emissions by up to 20% and increase production by that amount because they're not losing it into the atmosphere.
I'm curious if you can highlight other examples in the Atlantic region where this particular fund has translated the incredible research taking place at our universities into jobs in the Canadian economy.
