The Ecosystem Services, Commercialization Platforms and Entrepreneurship (ECOSCOPE) industrial stream NSERC CREATE training program provides UBC undergraduate and graduate students, and post-docs with the skills needed to translate environmental sequence information derived from studying microbial communities in natural and engineered ecosystems into commercial and entrepreneurial activities. ECOSCOPE increases capacity for highly qualified personnel (HQP) training in microbial ecology and biological engineering, allowing for team internships in start-up environments, and providing professional and entrepreneurial training to augment research skills and empower HQP to commercialize their innovations.

Although emanating from the Life Science Institute (LSI), ECOSCOPE defines a collaborative network between multiple departments on the UBC campus spanning basic and applied science (Chemical and Biological EngineeringChemistryComputer ScienceEarth Ocean and Atmospheric SciencesForestryMicrobiology and ImmunologyMining Engineering, and Statistics).
