The Hill Times Innovation issue and the Health Innovation and Policy Summit

The Hill Times has published their issue on innovation in Canada. Articles include Industry Canada Minister Prentice on his approach to innovation ("Innovation Nation") and Finance Minister Flaherty on creating the "knowledge advantage", as well as others. Notable is a piece by Canada Health Infoway's Richard Alvarez on the interdisciplinary side effects of innovation in health care. It's worth a look for anyone interested in innovation and the Science and Technology Strategy in Canada.

And speaking of innovation in health care, an upcoming conference in Toronto will be of interest to any working in this area. The Health Innovation and Policy Summit is being held 30 April to 1 May in downtown Toronto, and features an excellent line-up of speakers.
