ENGAGE: Competing in a digital world - the stars are aligning

Canada has an innovation agenda.

And, from my point of view, the timing of a renewed federal commitment to “global science excellence” and to “competing in a global world” couldn’t be better. The announcement came just days after Compute Ontario’s Board of Directors meeting, where ...
