Attention Montréalers!

E4D's Co-Founder Dr. Scott Findlay is a keynote speaker at the upcoming 5th annual Science & Policy Exchange Conference in Montréal. This year's conference theme is "The State of Innovation in Canada". 

The immense potential for innovative endeavours in Québec and Canada is not being realized. Despite its economic stability and favourable environment for start-ups, Canada consistently ranks low on the innovation scale. In fact, Québec currently stands out as the province with the lowest turnaround of innovative products for the amount of capital invested. If you are interested in these issues and the overall state of innovation and science in Canada, come join us! 

When:  October 3rd, 2014 9:00AM-8:00PM

Where:  New Residence Hall, 3625 Avenue du Parc, Montréal, Québec, H2X 3P8
