Canada Superclusters Fuel Innovation

c canadabusinessvents

To accelerate Canada’s innovation economy and elevate its place on the world stage across a variety of sectors, the Government of Canada recently invested $950 million in newly created “Superclusters” which will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the private sector. The five new Superclusters span the country, bringing together small, large and medium size businesses, academic and research institutions, and not-for-profit organizations to collaborate on frontier-breaking strategies that will fuel their region’s innovation ecosystem. The end result? A culture of collaboration and innovation across industries and geography, and promoted growth for sector-driven conferences, all of which contribute to the advancement of regional economies. “We looked at what we did well across our great nation, and we asked industry, academia and NGOs how we could do it better. The response was impressive and the ideas were remarkable,” says The Honourable Navdeep Bains, Canada’s Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development.
