NBSPRN was recently invited to be part of the InspireNB Implementation committee, lead by Venn Innovation (formerly Tech Southeast) and PETL. InspireNB is a platform designed to support students in their career choices and connect them with employers in the province. With wide adoption of this platform the by-product is rich data that can be accessed by researchers in the area of education, labour, and economics with subsequent knowledge used in policy development.
The winning team at Research2Impact designed their plan around this platform. GNB has been paying for this license for some time now with almost no uptake, but have now identified pilot schools to begin rolling it out.
There is currently no academic presence on this project so if you are interested in learning more about this initiative contact firstname.lastname@example.org
