Innovation. Itís on our minds these days Ėin the boardroom, trending on twitter, and sprinkled throughout a variety of news reports. How does one encourage business innovation? Maintain it? Build up an environment in which innovation not only flourishes but leads to long-term sustainable economic growth? Whatís governmentís role in supporting and making this happen?
The Canadian Council of Academies Report on Business Innovation and the Jenkins Report on government support for business innovation identified specific changes that some believe are needed to improve Canada's innovation performance. The federal government promised to listen, and aspects of Budget 2012 were meant to fulfill that promise.
Did it succeed? Is it enough? This May, RE$EARCH MONEY will take a hard look at the new innovation policies that emerge from the federal budget. Featuring some of Canadaís leading innovation thinkers and practitioners, the conversation will go beyond the money and assess the overall impact on future business success in Canada's knowledge-based economy.
Thank you to all who attended for making the 11th Annual RE$EARCH MONEY conference our most successful conference yet!
