R&I hits the trade show floor at OCI’s DiscoveryX Conference

In April, the Research & Innovation (R&I) division hit the trade show floor at OCI’s DiscoveryX Conference (DiscoveryX) in Toronto, ON. DiscoveryX is the premier innovation event in Canada, bringing together entrepreneurs, investors, researchers, government, and industry leaders.

Celebrating its 15th year in 2024, DiscoveryX is where innovators, thought leaders, and visionaries come together to explore the latest breakthroughs, share game-changing ideas, and build partnerships that propel innovation to dazzling new heights.

DiscoveryX conversations are a catalyst for advancing Ontario’s innovation ecosystem and driving economic prosperity.

At the R&I booth, we had an interactive display that included:

  • • A digital microscope demonstrating a beneficial insect that is commonly used in a greenhouse to combat insect pests
  • • A Creaform HandyScan, demonstrating our expertise in metrology
    • * This technology has an accuracy of 0.025 mm (0.0009 in.) and takes 1,300,000 measurements/second
  • • A bountiful display of beverage products from the Food & Beverage Innovation Centre’s collaborations with industry partners including Darling Mimosa, Reinhart’ Hard Apple Cider
  • • Poured samples of DistillX, Sobrii non-alcoholic Ready to Drink – Gin & Tonic
