Panel Organized by: Colleges and Institutes Canada | National Alliance of Provincial Health Research Organizations / Collèges et instituts Canada | L'alliance canadienne des organismes provinciaux de la recherche en santé  

Canada needs to balance its recent investments in skills and innovation to ensure they work together to build the research capacity and job skills needed today, and yet prepare us as a nation for the innovation challenges we will face tomorrow. This panel will present various approaches to building regional research and innovation capacity through collaborations between government programs, research funding agencies, industry associations and post- secondary education institutions. The audience will be engaged by facilitator-led small group discussions to shed light on the innovation capacity building challenges identified by the participants either in their community or sector of expertise.
