Heather Smart, an Applied Research Professional at the Technology Access Centre for Aerospace & Manufacturing (TACAM) based at Red River College, is participating in a panel today at the 17th annual Research Money Conference in Ottawa.
Heather is participating in a panel titled “Demand for Innovative Talent: Employer Perspective” that addresses the question of how Canadian firms working with educational institutions and other innovation intermediaries can prepare the talent needed to scale Canada’s innovation game.
This year’s conference theme is “Breaking Through the Status Quo: Scaling Canada’s Innovation Game.” The conference aims to “look at a number of challenge areas that keep coming up in studies of Canada’s innovation ecosystem.
“Instead of repeating the difficulties, we will hear from innovators who are breaking new ground and overcoming old habits of thinking and doing to generate wealth and social benefits from knowledge. From these exemplars, we will review policy implications and how we can generate more success at scale.”
