Innovation in Action: Tales of Public-Private Collaboration

12:00 - 13:20
Canada Hall, Shaw Centre

To keep pace with evolving expectations and rapid technological advances, governments around the world are transforming the way they deliver services and interact with citizens and business. One of the key enablers for this transformation is the innovation ecosystem, which engages small and medium enterprises in solving real world problems, growing jobs and building export capacity. This session will highlight strategic approaches Canada and other countries are taking to foster innovation, including how the innovation ecosystems are driven by public-private sector collaboration. This session will also include a panel of innovative small and medium enterprises who will discuss how they benefit from the innovation ecosystem and the opportunities and challenges that they face.
