CCR Responds to Industry Canada Consultation on Science, Technology and Innovation Agenda.

Industry Canada recently sought input from Canada’s scientific community on its Science, Technology and Innovation Agenda. Questions for which the government sought input included:

  1. How can Canada continue to develop, attract and retain the world’s top research talent at our businesses, research institutions, colleges and polytechnics, and universities?
  2. What actions could be taken, by the government or others, to enhance the mobilization of knowledge and technology from government laboratories and universities, colleges and polytechnics to the private sector?
  3. Building on the advice provided by the Expert Panel on Federal Support for Research and Development, what more can be done to improve business investment in R&D and innovation?
  4. How might Canada build upon its success as a world leader in discovery-driven research?
  5. Is the Government of Canada’s suite of programs appropriately designed to best support research excellence?
