Conference Call

Virtual event: Why Canada needs a DARPA

What would it take for Canada’s innovation economy to thrive? The Business Council of Canada, an organization representing the country’s biggest companies, says it’s time to set bold national goals to transform scientific strengths into economic performance—and to do that, we need a federal R&D powerhouse like the U.S.’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency

Robert Asselin, senior vice-president of policy, Business Council of Canada and former advisor to two prime ministers, joined The Logic‘s Murad Hemmadi for a pre-budget briefing call on what a Canadian DARPA might look like, and what missions it might pursue.    

In partnership with the Business Council of Canada’s Corporate Innovator Network
