LNC Policy Summit Panel: Scaling Innovations

Jan 3, 2023

Why is Canada so good at creating inventions… and yet so far behind in bringing new inventions to market and scaling up? Panelists at the LNC's 2022 Policy Summit dissected opportunities and obstacles that their industries face in commercialization of new technology, scaling up ventures and driving new technology adoption for socio-economic impact. They offer their own set of actionable policy ideas to address some of the obstacles.
