CICan Symposium Accelerating Innovation through Applied Research

Nov 5th - Nov 6th, 2018


Event Navigation

Join Applied Research colleagues from across the country to exchange ideas and strategies on innovation and inclusive growth for Canada. The Symposium will bring together federal policy makers, leaders in applied research, students, community and industry partners to discuss how to support Canadian innovators, including small and medium enterprises. They will also discuss strategies to foster entrepreneurship, while scaling-up businesses and advancing social and health innovation. This will be a great opportunity to exchange with federal policy makers on the importance of college and institute applied research!

This year, to strengthen advocacy positioning on the federal government Innovation and Skills Plan, the CICan Leaders Forum for college and institute Presidents and CEOs will be held in conjunction with the Symposium. The events will run concurrently with joint plenary sessions for Presidents and Heads of Applied Research on the afternoon of November 5, focusing on Applied Research and Innovation.

A highlight of the event will be the Student Innovation Showcase on the Hill on November 5, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Skilled and creative students will have the opportunity to showcase their applied research projects, along with lead researchers. All members of parliament and senators have been invited to attend the showcase. A Call for Proposals for the Showcase will be issued on August 22, 2018.
