Expert Panel Consultation Paper: Section 4


The Panel is pleased to have the opportunity to undertake the Review of Federal Support to R&D. This important exercise is taking place at a critical time — a nexus of global economic instability and rapid emergence of new powers. In this context, filled with opportunity and challenge, the countries most likely to succeed are those who understand that business innovation holds the key to raising living standards. The Panel hopes that this Review, with its specific focus on the role of R&D in support of business innovation, will culminate in a set of practical recommendations for the government — recommendations that will help Canada's private sector unleash its potential and rank among the world's innovation leaders.
