60 Years of Science Atlantic

Our History

In 1962, the Atlantic Provinces Inter-University Committee on the Sciences (APICS) was founded to encourage collaboration across Maritime universities and the government sector. Over the past six decades, the organization has evolved and grown, now representing 18 post-secondary institutions from all four Atlantic provinces.  While the name has changed, Science Atlantic’s core mandate remains the same: to make connections and provide opportunities for students, educators, and researchers.
