CICan Applied Research Network Session – Strengthening our Case for Increased Federal Support (E)

April 26, 2022 | 9:00 - 10:00

Location: Room 506-507
Track: Connection Activity

College and institute leaders responsible for and interested in applied research are invited to join this session to hear about the new CICan Advocacy Agenda – Applied Research Pillar. The purpose of the Advocacy Agenda is to adopt a strategic approach to advancing member advocacy and policy priorities with the federal government in the short and medium term. This network session will provide highlights of how CICan is aiming to reframe the role of college and institute applied research, with an emphasis on powering Canadian innovation and commercialization. We will share with you the early wins we are targeting to position college applied research offices and centres as a key part of the solution to improving Canada’s growth and competitiveness and increase federal support. We will also share and welcome input on medium-term wins we aim to pursue on behalf of members. We look forward to seeing you there!
