#RM_Ott19 last panel @research_money on whole-of-govt initiatives to support #innovation. Moderated by @ChristineTrautt @CollegeCan, w/ Rob Wright ADM of @PSPC_SPAC, Wayne Moore @DFO_MPO, @NancyHamzawi ADM @environmentca, Andrea Johnston @ISED_CA, Gilles Saindon @AAFC_Canada
#RM_Ott19 RW says @PSPC_SPAC is looking beyond the usual vertical approach of governments, taking a more partnership view to drive success. WM @DFO_Science adds that bar has been set high for collab across departments, to get other ministers' / ADM's input and advice
#RM_Ott19 AJ @ISED_CA likes the "partnership" view, which aligns well with innovation portfolio of ISED. The federal family can be engaged in partnerships in one swoop (e.g. in Clean Growth Hub) rather than forcing external partners to reach out to depts separately

#RM_Ott19 second of 3 panels today @research_money, on industry perspectives on #superclusters. Moderated by Martha Crago @McGill_VPRI @mcgillu, w/ Moya Cahill @PanGeoSubsea, David Dzisiak @corteva @canolacouncil, @slapierreceo @tealbook, and Warren Wall @dwavesys
#RM_Ott19 @dwavesys is an early partner of @DTSupercluster and wants to better penetrate the πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ market (they have had more success internationally). @tealbook is collaborating w/ @ccab_national and pitching to @AISupplyChain
#RM_Ott19 theme of "no prophet in your own hometown" is common thread across industry leaders presenting here @research_money, from @dwavesys to @PanGeoSubsea to @questortech. πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ companies tend to thrive internationally, but have trouble in home market. #superclusters might help.

#RM_Ott19 @mgfortin_rd - #superclusters represent 50K jobs, in 5 clusters receiving a total 1B$ from the government. Today we'll here some of their plans, but it's important to remember that we all have a stake in this.
#RM_Ott19 what is your supercluster, and how will it work differently? @kendmacdonald @CanadaOSC says it will bring together siloed sectors, who have similar goals and who are aiming at the same challenges for Nova Scotia and Canada

Stellar panel at @research_money #RM_Ott19 to cap off the evening, chaired by Paul Dufour, w/ Dan Wayner @NRC_CNRC, Sarah Gallagher @scgQuasar @csa_asc, and @ChiefSciCan
P Dufour - There is nothing more useless, than unwanted science advice. Need demand, context, and institutional capacity to sustain it. It's important to maintain trust, and not to oversell the role of advisors.

So, what's the secret sauce to support #scienceadvice in Canada?
#RM_Ott19 @ChiefSciCan is the "dean" of #scienceadvice in Canada, but it still feels like she just got there. Most importantly, she hopes that she is the first of many.

#RM_Ott19 @research_money next panel on Using the Full Spice Rack of talent and skills, w/ @BenoitTessier1 @ISED_CA, @rhonda_barnet of AVIT manufacturing, Elisha Ram @Labour_ESDC and @ajtibando @paletteskills
BT: there's a blame game on #skills ➑️ everyone points to someone else for leadership and responsibility for bringing skills to the next gen.

Q: if the 3 panelists are marooned an island, what skills do they need?

RB says govt and academia are limited help, so she will get people from her company to interact with young people and set up a robotics competition on the island. Also #WIL and active mentorship.

#RM_Ott19 @research_money next panel is on policy and #EDI w/ @kelly_mcgahey of @HireImmOttawa, @BerubeDo @SSHRC_CRSH, Jane Ngobia @sheridancollege, and Mahadeo Sukhai @CNIB
Employers are worried about resistance to #EDI within their organizations, incl white nationalism and resistance to immigrants - @kelly_mcgahey #RM_Ott19
#RM_Ott19 @BerubeDo @SSHRC_CRSH describes case study of complaints against Canada Research Chairs, which were not equitably distributed. This has inspired #EDI initiatives forcing insitutions to meet set targets to submit CRCs. This greatly improved diversity in nominations

#RM_Ott19 @research_money next panel: digital strategies for a successful tomorrow w/ @LivNeal @TBS_Canada, Anil Anora @StatCan_eng, Sasha Hobbs of First Nations Tech Council, @DuganOneil @SFU, and Ben Sanders @proof
BS launched companies in Silicon Valley and engaged gov at different levels (incl running for office), now launching @proof to assist in digital governance.

SH has been in academia @SFU, in BC government, now at FNTC which partners with fed and prov govs, superclusters, etc,
DON says academic programs must evolve rapidly, today's grads have (need) different skills than past grads ➑️ train the next gen according to where job market is going (largely, more digital). + Partnerships with policymakers like AA @StatCan_eng are important for EBDM

#RM_Ott19 @research_money next panel is on IP w/ Erin Campbell @ISED_CA, @psnelgro @CanHealthyOcean, Sumitra Rajagopalan of BioAstra, and Max Skudra @ccab_national
EC: What does IP mean to you, how has your understanding changed over time?
@psnelgro : understood that trainees' careers and training must be prioritized when considering IP. Single IP policies must often be revised on case by case basis
SR: Good IP policy is dependent on monetization policy around it. A sound IP strategy can create win win agreements (e.g. researcher has back end IP, partner gets front end / application IP, so everyone gets benefits in the long run)

Next panel @research_money #RM_Ott19 on interdisciplinarity w/ @MarieFranquin @DSP_SPE, Ted Hewitt @CRSH_SSHRC, RR Runte @InnovationCA, Chelsea Gabel @McMasterU, and Stefan Leslie @MEOPAR_NCE
Q:What is interdisciplinary?
SL: not the same as multidisciplinary (which is many disciplines coming together), it is working at the interface of disciplines.
CG: engaged collaboration, working with multiple partners, political spheres, and multiple ways of knowing
Q: What is interdisciplinary?
@MarieFranquin : agreed! It's also about making sure top expertise comes together to make something better. Reaching out to those who can elevate your research.

Arrived at @research_money conf #RM_Ott19 just as the contribution of @MitacsCanada and presence of #CSPF is mentioned... Good timing!

I'm here w/ my @NSERC_CRSNG colleagues, and also happy to see @DSP_SPE included as a partner + that @MarieFranquin is on a panel this morning πŸ™Œ
Keynote speaker #RM_Ott19 is David Watters discussing the impact of #Budget2019 on Canadian research and Canada as a whole. Excellent summary and great figures ⬇️
Supporting research excellence was a relatively small investment compared to big ticket items in #Budget2019. GERD/GDP is still very low compared to OECD colleagues
