Panel Organized by: Ryerson University, Office of Vice President Research and Innovation

Canada has been advancing and implementing strategies fueling a rapidly growing innovation economy. From afar, Canada’s balance between government and private investments is highly regarded. Canadian financial institutions, small cap funding (e.g. TSX Ventures), and large pool of capital held in some of the largest pension plans attract global interest. There is a constellation of partnerships and collaborations between our universities and institutions abroad as reflected in both co-publications and impact. Canadian universities are excellent and our research is world class.

Canada still struggles to scale, evolve and retain global enterprises. Has Canada sufficiently pivoted our global relationships in a globally dynamic innovation economy? How can we harness the constellation of activities in a more coordinated and synergistic way that conveys scale, excellence and global excellence? How might universities scale its international engagement with greater impact?" Have we effectively harnessed the important intersections of an innovation economy (government, business, universities, and global relationships) in an impactful way?
