Attending the conference and participating as a panel member provided networking connections that have become invaluable to PIP. I witnessed great conversations across many industries about innovation challenges and wins. New networks were working together to solve and provide potential solutions to barriers faced in Canada.
The Research Money conference is a must for anyone interested in addressing Canada's innovation and productivity challenges. Attendees from the private and public sectors engage in fruitful, action-oriented discussions and share diverse and often opposing positions on critical issues. The networking is fantastic - an unparalleled set of contacts - all relevant to innovation in Canada.
I had the opportunity to attend the Research Money conference in Ottawa recently and it was truly exceptional. The conference provided excellent networking opportunities, and I was able to attend many thought-provoking sessions. I particularly appreciated how Jeff Crelinsten, the organizer and founding father, was willing to ask difficult questions, and the speakers he personally invited were some of the most knowledgeable people who could answer them. Overall, I strongly recommend attending this conference if you are interested in research and innovation in Canada.
I really enjoyed being a panelist in the 2023 Life Sciences Sector session, which I felt represented the current success of Canadian innovation, as well as highlighting where Canada needs to improve to continue to seed new innovation and enable life science companies to scale.
