"Are Canada's Business R&D Incentives Working?"
The sixth annual RE$EARCH MONEY Conference examines the effectiveness of
government policies and programs to encourage R&D and innovation in Canada.
What mix of incentives should governments choose?
Is the current focus on R&D enough, or do companies need other kinds of support?
What mechanisms are other countries using to grow their knowledge-based sectors?
Kirk Mandy, President and CEO of Zarlink Semiconductor, will deliver the keynote address. He will be joined by a powerful roster of accomplished business leaders and other experts including: Dave Jaworsky Director, Government and University Relations, Research in Motion, Bob Fessenden, Deputy Minister, Alberta Advanced Education and Technology, Lisa Crossley, President & CEO, Nysa Membrane Technologies Inc, John Wood, Senior Advisor, Science and Technology, General Motors Canada, Alastair Glass, Deputy Minister, Ontario Ministry of Research and Innovation, Jim Roche, Acting President & CEO, Canadian Microelectronics Corp, and Jacek Warda Managing Principal, JPW Innovation Associates Inc.
The aim of the RE$EARCH MONEY Conference is to provide a forum to discuss
ways in which Canadian policy makers can best support a vital and growing
private sector capable of winning globally.
The RE$EARCH MONEY Conference will be held at the National Arts Centre.
