Fast-Tracking Inclusive Innovation

Colleges and Institutes Canada invites you to join colleagues, partners and stakeholders from across the country to share strategies and success stories on how colleges and institutes are helping to make Canada a “confident nation of innovators”.

As the federal government puts the finishing touches on its Innovation Agenda, this event will bring college and institute leaders in applied research, entrepreneurship and skills training together with government and industry representatives, the next generation of entrepreneurs and a full range of industry and community partners. We will exchange perspectives and explore solutions related to:

• creating applied research partnerships that respond to the R&D needs of all sectors;
• equipping students with the skills, experience and attitudes that make them “innovation ready”;
• accelerating the growth of new businesses and social enterprises on campus and in communities.

We look forward to a lively exchange on how to create a more innovative Canada.
