Workshop on Intellectual Property, Biotechnology Capacity and Development, September 25-27, 2006


Problems
Problems Innovation.

  • Canada is lagging behind other countries in innovative development (OECD)

  • Federalism: Split jurisdiction for Science and Technology

  • Retention and Attraction of Highly Qualified Personnel (HQPs)

  • Lack of Venture Capital


Approaches
Approaches Innovation.

  • Models to enhance research collaboration and knowledge mobilization

    • Networks of Centres of Excellence (NCEs)

    • Genome Canada

  • Model to enhance scientific infrastructure

    • Canadian Foundation for Innovation

  • Model to enhance retention & recruitment

    • Canada Research Chairs


Approaches1
Approaches Innovation.

  • Models to Enhance Venture Capital

    • Genome Canada

    • Institutional Initiatives (technology parks, incubation facilities e.g., MaRS)

    • Provincial Initiatives (VRQ)


Lessons learned
Lessons Learned Innovation.

  • NCE and Genome Canada models

    • Need better management of IP strategies

    • Lack of inter-institutional coordination

    • Need vision of purpose of commercialization strategies around IP (licensing vs spin-offs vs knowledge mobilization)

    • Need better metrics


Conclusions from cipp study
Conclusions from CIPP study Innovation.

  • Create Canadian forum to address tech and knowledge transfer issues

  • Develop a Canada-wide technology and knowledge transfer strategy, including model agreements

  • Investigate ways to bridge funding gap

  • Increase capacity in IP and tech and knowledge transfer
