Summary: R & D Beyond Moose and Mountains offers insights to the value of biotechnology in Canada today, while addressing the fundamental questions of how to improve capital formation and the operating environment for innovative technologies. The challenge of growing our economy, increasing our productivity, while creating new 21st century jobs must be met with the reality of competing against the most dynamic global race for innovation in history. Canada has been at the early forefront of research and discovery. But times have changed, other countries are moving quickly to capture knowledge into know how and modernize their economies into new global leadership. With the strong foundation Canada has in place there is no reason why we cannot emerge into a leading global nation driven by its ability to research, develop and adopt innovative technologies. This consultation offers Canada an important opportunity to revitalize its commitment to research and development.
