A Sampling of Success Stories of Federal Investment in University Research.
This volume illustrates how Canadian federal investment is advancing key measures of success in building research capacity at Ontario universities. Program descriptions illustrate federal investment in university-based research at 18 institutions of higher education in Ontario. A look at these programs shows that government-funded research is developing Canada's knowledge workforce and supporting the training of students who will transfer their skills and knowledge to the private sector. Government-funded research is expanding technological opportunities for firms to develop new products and processes, and it supports the creation of dynamic clusters of firms and knowledge flows essential to effective innovation.
