RE$EARCH MONEY's 3rd annual conference will explore the benefits of investing in R&D for Canada and the organizations that make these investments.
Over the past decade, Canada's federal and provincial governments have been pouring billions of dollars into university research. Private sector firms have also been contributing significantly to research in universities, in addition to their own internal R&D. Universities, too, are investing in new research chairs, programs, partnerships and infrastructure.
What are taxpayers and shareholders getting for their money? What's the return on investment? Over the course of a day, invited experts will examine the return from our investments in R&D from the perspective of industry, government, universities and society.
