Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency
ACOA's Atlantic Innovation Fund encourages the commercialization of research in Atlantic Canada and has been a key driver for many Atlantic Canadian businesses, universities and research institutions. It has enhanced Atlantic Canada's reputation for innovation and, through the success of the projects it has funded, the AIF contributes significantly to the region's research and development capacity and its economic performance. Funding provided from ACOA was a catalyst to the establishment of CAS Atlantic and its founding research in accelerating Java using massive multicore systems.
