Presentation Overview

  • Introduction: Collaboration and Partnerships -Why and How

  • Basic Partnerships

  • Large Scale Partnerships with OGDs

  • Beyond Partnerships

  • The Future in Collaboration and Partnerships


Collaboration and partnerships why
Collaboration and Partnerships - Why?

  • Leverage skills and resources

  • Larger and sustainable impact

  • Unique competitive advantage

  • Opens doors for future endeavours


Collaboration and partnerships how
Collaboration and Partnerships - How?

  • Identify common goals

  • Break down traditional barriers between different levels of government, academia and industry

  • Move quickly to specific projects


Basic partnerships
Basic Partnerships

Example: NRC Crossroad for BioTransfer

  • Annual technology transfer event

  • One-stop venue for health-sector businesses to forge partnerships with research-intensive institutions and leading researchers and innovators

  • This year’s event showcased 40 high impact technologies from NRC, McGill University and l’Université de Montreal

    Result: NRC working with two of Canada’s leading universities to create tech transfer opportunities and enhance biopharma sector


Large scale partnerships with ogds
Large Scale Partnerships with OGDs

Example: National Bioproducts Program

  • Multidisciplinary initiative co-led by NRC, NRCan and AgCan

  • Program supports federal S&T strategy and seeks to address Canadian priorities relating to the environment, sustainable energy and rural revitalization

  • Ongoing consultations with industry experts to ensure that project results are aligned with industry needs and directed toward commercialization

  • Program is guided by Advisory Body composed of industry experts who provided strategic guidance

    Result: Program that operates in an industry-facing manner and that leverages skills and resources from three leading federal science institutions toward common goals and Canadian priorities


Beyond partnerships
Beyond Partnerships

Example: Biomedical Commercialization Canada (BCC)

  • Private sector, not-for profit business incubation organization located at a local NRC Industry Partnership Facility (IPF) and created through a partnership involving NRC and Government of Manitoba

NRC IPFs incubate new and small companies and give them access to leading edge R&D, equipment, flexible lab and office space and NRC professionals who are committed to finding innovative solutions to foster commercialization and success.


  • NRC was instrumental in creating the concept of BCC:

    Create a company to support more innovative and growth-oriented companies without dealing with “government red tape”

  • BCC offers entrepreneur and commercialization support programs to early-stage biomedical companies

  • NRC supports BCC by providing access to research facilities, technical information, innovation services (i.e. link with NRC-IRAP) and advisory services

Result: NRC invests in business incubators to ensure that new technologies are properly launched into the marketplace


The future in collaborations and partnerships
The Future in Collaborations and Partnerships

  • All levels of government, industry and academia working together(i.e. clusters)

  • “Foresighting”(cross departmental)

  • International collaboration for big issues(i.e. climate change)
