Summary: FPInnovations' experience of establishing and operating an industry-driven, public: private partnership focused on innovation in a single sector may provide a helpful model for how Canada could lead in innovation in a number of industrial sectors. Cluster-based applied research, innovation development and deployment linked to market intelligence is a clear strategy for a nation to pursue. If Canada is to make measurable gains in productivity and build competitive advantage for Canadian industries, it needs a strategy for innovation that is more robust than that now in place.
