On Thursday October 23, The Ernest C. Manning Awards Foundation and the University of Ottawa co-presented the 2014 Celebration of Innovation Symposium. This year’s discussion focused on commercialization in innovation and solutions to many of the barriers innovators face when they take their innovation to market featuring 2014 Principal Award winner Dr. Paul Santerre, 2014 Award of Distinction winner Dr. Tigran Galstian, 2014 Innovation Award winner Glenn Cox, Paul Lem, CEO of Spartan Bioscience, and Bert van den Berg, Director, Colleges, Commercialization and Portfolio Planning with Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada.
The ensuing discussion was interesting and illuminating, calling for increased attention to the importance of innovation in Canada and its role in ensuring Canada’s place as an economic and social leader. To view the video, please click here.
