The heart of innovation in Canada

As primary drivers of Canadian research and innovation, universities must work hard to close the gap between private and public sectors.

"When you talk about research in this country, and the research that leads to innovation, it's going to be happening primarily in universities," President Peter Stoicheff told Universities Canada.
