The world of ideas moves quickly so the Federation was eager to respond when the government asked for input to inform a refresh the 2007 S&T Strategy.  Our submission responded to the three areas highlighted in the government’s consultation document: business innovation, developing innovative and entrepreneurial people, and research excellence. 

We hope you will read our full submission, available  here, in which we emphasize that successful business innovation is a people-centered process; innovation may be accelerated through digital research and technologies; experiential learning and collaboration should be facilitated across all sectors of the economy; and Canadian science and technology strength depends on social sciences and humanities.
