From Discovery to Business Innovation

The Metro Toronto Convention Centre is abuzz this week with two conferences that nicely represent the continuum of research, from basic to applied through to experimental development and business innovation.  OCE Discovery is the annual conference sponsored by the Ontario Centres of Excellence, which funds R&D in the province. It represents the scale and scope of the R&D and Innovation ecosystem - most if not all public sector R&D performers are there showing the strengths of the system that supports research from the lab to the marketplace. The Conference Board of Canada convenes today and tomorrow for their Business Innovation Summit 2015, offering a range of speakers on topics as diverse as fostering innovation and R&D for market outputs through to the skills required for an innovative workforce.  In short, within one venue we have the opportunity to see and hear from many leaders from the spectrum of R&D and innovation.
