Innovation is key to the continued growth of a firm, this can be challenging especially for small and medium-sized businesses that require investments and financial support to enable research and development projects.
Canadian government programs and corporate investors require projects to be adequately defined before investments can be considered. This conference will present best practices for defining R&D projects and proposals, taking into account technical and business aspects. To address this topic, concepts such as Technology Readiness Level, Innovation, and Risk definition and Mitigation will be presented. From a business perspective, how to describe benefits to the firm, stakeholders and Canada will be described. Common activities required by the firm following a proposal submission will be highlighted.
