Dr. Simon Potter - Why the Maritime Provinces of Canada Decided to Become a Lot More “Intelligent”

In this episode of The Intelligent Community, ICF Co-Founder Lou Zacharilla speaks with Dr. Simon Potter, Director of the College Office of Research Enterprise at New Brunswick Community College.

ICF announced early this year that it issued a license for its third Institute. The new ICF Institute will be based in Atlantic Canada, in the city of Fredericton, New Brunswick at New Brunswick Community College. The new Canadian institute joins those established in Dublin, Ohio (USA) and Hsinchu, Taiwan to further promote the Intelligent Community Forum’s method for accelerating the growth of regions and states by transforming clusters of cities and towns into economically robust and socially stable “Intelligent Communities.” Dr. Simon Potter, the Director for the College Office of Research Enterprise at New Brunswick Community College discusses the importance of the new Institute, how he hopes it will increase innovation and collaboration throughout the region, and why New Brunswick was chosen as the site of Canada’s first ICF Institute.
