Oceans Holyrood Initiative
Fascinating things are happening both above and below the high water mark in Holyrood.
At the Oceans Holyrood Initiative (OHI), our MISSION is to foster, enable and accelerate an Oceans Industries Community of Practice in the Holyrood region of Conception Bay, Newfoundland and Labrador.
Guided by a multi-disciplinary Advisory Board of ocean technology, academic and economic development experts, and fueled by an ever-growing Marine Institute presence, our VISION is for the Region to become a diversified, self-sustaining “Community of Practice” in oceans-related research, education, training and business development. We’re already making waves and we’ve only just begun!
