Addressing the Innovation Talent Gap
November 24, 2022 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm MSTFree
This event is hosted in Classroom 2 in the Platform Innovation Centre.
As part of #InnovationWeekYYC, Mitacs will address one of the most pervasive and sticky problems facing our innovation ecosystem in Calgary: the challenge of accessing, funding and developing talent. A hosted panel of successful local company executives will share their experiences and provide lessons learned on the following questions:
- How do I find people?
- How do I pay for people?
- How do I train people?
The panel speakers and our moderator will be announced in early November. More details coming soon!
Mitacs is a national, independent, not-for-profit organization that fosters growth and innovation. We bring together industry (including for profit and non-profits) and post-secondary institutions to develop R&D projects which solve business and societal challenges while advancing academic research goals.
Together and with our other university and community partners, we hope to help academics, entrepreneurs, non-profits, and companies turn their research into ground-breaking discoveries (both social and commercial innovations) to improve healthcare, and other sectors across Canada and around the world.
