Commercializing Research for a Modern Canada

Are we taking advantage of Canada’s best ideas and discoveries?

That’s the question we’re putting to a panel of innovators, academics and policymakers in a new event collaboration with the University of Waterloo, happening February 8th, 2018 at the brand new Canadian Science & Technology Museum.

From clean technologies to quantum computing, from the laboratory to industry, and from startup ideas to global relevance, what does the future hold for Canadian invention?

As we continue to embrace the knowledge economy, Canada’s applied research potential needs unlocking:

  • How do we turn government investments into economic value?
  • Where are the broken links from research and development to commercialization?
  • Is the problem more that not enough Canadian research is commercializable, or are do we create potentially commercializable research then fail to commercialize it?
  • What are the proper incentives to commercializing research? Who should own the IP for university funded research?

Join us Feburary 8th at the Canadian Museum of Science & Technology for an interactive panel discussion as we explore how to unlock our collective innovation potential.
