FREDERICTON, N.B. – New Brunswick’s transformed research organization is rebranding to better promote the province as a Canadian research and innovation hub.
ResearchNB launched its new name and brand at a reception held at Fredericton’s Beaverbrook Art Gallery last night.
“We’re excited to launch ResearchNB, our new name and brand, because it more clearly defines what our organization wants to be: the hub of New Brunswick’s research and innovation engine,” said Damon Goodwin, ResearchNB’s chief executive officer. “ResearchNB will generate greater opportunity and growth for New Brunswick’s research and innovation sector by funding research, promoting research excellence, building partnerships and fostering win-win collaborations.”
Created through a merger of the New Brunswick Health Research Foundation and BioNB, ResearchNB is the province’s research and innovation enabler. Bringing the two organizations together as ResearchNB presents a more cohesive vision for research and innovation in New Brunswick. The board is made up of key players in the research sector, including representatives of industry, academia and government, and they will work collaboratively to drive advancements for the benefit of New Brunswickers.
“ResearchNB provides New Brunswick’s research sector with critical leadership and support including advocacy, initial funding, connections to potential partners, and the translation of science into economic opportunities,” said Board Chair Tracy Clinch. “Projects developed with ResearchNB’s help will help New Brunswickers to thrive through improvements to patient care, an even stronger bioeconomy and increased economic growth.”
ResearchNB has offices in Fredericton, Saint John, and Moncton and works with provincial and national government officials, academics, researchers, and business and industry leaders. The organization plans to celebrate its rebrand in other regions over the next few months.
