GIT is Attending Upcoming Ocean Supercluster Forum in St. John’s

Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada (June 17, 2019)Graphite Innovation and Technologies (GIT) will be attending the upcoming Cluster Building Forum hosted by Canada’s Ocean Supercluster in St. John’s, Newfoundland on June 25, 2019.

GIT is excited to join other members of the Ocean Supercluster (OSC) to learn about the next phase of the OSC, including the role-out of our IP and Data strategies, and focused networking.

IP and Data strategies, two integral components of technology leadership programs and projects, and important strategic frameworks for a strong and dynamic Supercluster.

The OSC has developed a forward-looking data strategy that aims to foster information exchange between ocean industries and provide a clear vision of how they can transform data generated from project activities into a strategic national asset.

The IP strategy aims to incent high-impact collaborations, provide a foundation for the development of flexible and predictable IP policies, ensure members are able to secure appropriate rights that are in line with their commercial interests, and position Canadian organizations to maximize the return of their innovations.

GIT is particularly excited to engage in these discussions and share more about our company, from both the perspective of an innovative company and also that of an early-stage startup.

GIT launches testing of new anti-biofouling marine coating

Graphite Innovation & Technologies (GIT) Inc. is developing and testing a disruptive marine coating that reduces biofouling on marine vessels.

Phase One of the testing is being conducting at COVE (Centre for Ocean Ventures and Entrepreneurship).

Our anti-biofouling marine coating utilizes graphene that will create a material that works to protect ship hulls, helping to increase fuel inefficiencies and the longevity of boat hulls. By discouraging the growth of organisms, our innovative paints will drastically improve the performance of a boat over its lifetime.
