Verschuren Centre

The Verschuren Centre (VC) is an industrial solutions, development and deployment centre, advancing sustainable resource management in our key fields of expertise – Renewable energy, Bio-processing, Aquaculture and Nano materials.

Located on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, home to world-class natural resources and Canada’s most progressive climate change laws, the Centre is well-positioned to  undertake directly relevant research, and lead its application and governance.  Verschuren Centre faculty, staff, and students draw inspiration from a collaborative approach to research.  The Centre is also positively influenced by Cape Breton University’s diversely international campus population, the Island’s remarkable ecosystems, and the Centre’s design: one of the most sustainable university laboratories in Canada.
